Helpful Inclement Weather Information for Families

In the event of inclement weather, Excel Public Charter School will align school delays and closures with the Kent School District. For example, if the Kent School District has a 10AM late start due to inclement weather, Excel will also have a 10AM late start that day. The Kent School District will notify local media of any closures or delays. Local radio and television news station information is listed below.


  • KOMO 4 TV
  • KOMO 1000 AM Radio



  • KIRO 7 TV
  • KIRO 97.3 FM Radio

Excel Public Charter School has several different methods of notification when school is closed or delayed due to inclement weather.


In the event of a school closure or delay, notification will be through:

  • Phone calls: Automated phone calls will be made early in the morning to the primary household number(s) for each family. Please ensure your contact information is current in our system. In addition, we recommend you choose a telephone option that will operate during a power outage. (Many landlines are now bundled with cable services and do not work during power outages.)
  • Excel will post school closure and delay alerts to the school homepage. Visit us at
  • Notifications will also be posted on social media on Excel’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
