Emergency Weather Plans

 

Delayed Opening / Emergency Closing Plans

*The Superintendent generally makes decision concerning early morning school closing or delayed openings prior to 5 a.m.

*An announcement is then provided to 38 radio stations and eight (8) television stations in the Washington metropolitan area.  The goal is to contact the stations in time for early morning broadcasts that begin between 5 and 6 a.m.

*This information may also be accessed on the school system's web page at www.pgcps.org and/or www.schools-out.com.

*After 6 a.m., staff and parents can also access the school system's Voice Mail Bulletin Board by calling 301-952-6000.  Wait for the opening message, and then press the number 1.

*Watch PGCPS TV on Comcast Channel 96 or Verizon FIOS Channel 38

When schools are closed early or all day, all evening activities are cancelled, and school buildings are not available for after-school activities by other private or public organizations.  When schools have a two-hour delayed opening time, all half-day programs are cancelled, including Pre-Kindergarten.
