Submission to closings service
KCTV5 accepts the following for submission to our closings service: schools K-12, colleges, universities, trade schools, meals on wheels programs and some governmental closings. At this time, we do NOT
accept day cares or private businesses.
KCTV5 has had a recent change in its closings procedure. We no longer take closings from SCHOOLS OR CHURCHES by email or telephone calls directly to the KCTV5 News Desk.
You must be signed up to participate in our automated telephone closings process. Submission forms are below. We do NOT accept closing notifications through the on-line forms and these forms are NOT for individual viewers to sign-up.
These forms are only intended for SCHOOL, CHURCH ADMINISTRATORS and MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAMS to sign-up for our database. If you are an entity that is not a school, church or Meals on Wheels program, you can proceed as you have in the past. Once you sign up, station personnel will email you about our automated telephone closings process, complete with secure codes.
If you are signing up to be part of our process on a bad weather day, the volume of requests might be large, so we ask patience. We advise that you not wait until a snow day to submit for acceptance to our automated telephone closings process. Thank you.
