How are Weather-Related Decisions Made?

When inclement weather occurs, Anne Arundel County Public Schools has personnel out assessing the roads as soon as that is practical. Decisions about delayed openings or closings are made with many factors in mind, most notably the condition of school lots and walkways, the condition of roads, and the condition of sidewalks students must travel to get to school. read more

Questions About Notifications of Delayed Openings/ School Closings?
