  • Emergency Notifications, School Closings and Delays

    Emergency Notifications, School Closings and Delays

    School delays or closures greatly impact our students, families and staff. The decision to delay or close schools is not taken lightly. A delay or closure is based on a variety of factors including National Weather Service reports and recommendations from Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) transportation supervisors who survey county road and weather conditions.

    Our decisions are collaborative efforts involving PGCPS staff and Prince George’s County agencies, as well as neighboring school districts. Our top concern in closing or delaying schools is safety for buses, motorists and students who walk to school.

    It is our long-standing practice to remain open as long as roads are safe, open and passable, and predicted to remain so. In the event of inclement weather, the decision to open or close schools will be made prior to 5:30 a.m. on the day in question and communicated as soon as possible to the media, parents and staff.
