School cancellations and delays are not uncommon in the state of Maine, especially during the winter months. Most are caused by inclement weather, with the exception of an occasional power outage or maintenance issue. Here are some of the most useful media outlets for information on the latest Maine school cancellations:

Bangor: WABI 5 / Portland: WCSH 6 / Presque Isle: WAGM 8

There are several other ways to obtain this information. Some Maine colleges and universities publicize cancellations on their websites and/or provide specific phone numbers for cancellation inquiries. School websites often supply lists of media outlets that broadcast their cancellations.

Also, WABI 5 and certain other local TV channels offer website visitors the option to sign up for e-mail notifications when a particular school or business closes. Many radio stations broadcast cancellation details as well, particularly WPOR, WGAN, WMGX, WBLM, WABK, WHOU and WKTJ.
