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.
Notifications of Delayed Openings/ School Closings?
Changes to school schedules caused by inclement weather or other emergency conditions are announced through the Blackboard Connect (formerly Connect-ED) automated notification system; posted on the school system’s website (www.aacps.org), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aacps), and Twitter page (@AACountySchools); and broadcast on major area radio and television stations, including AACPS-TV (Channel 96 on Comcast and Broadstripe, and Channel 36 on Verizon). In addition, announcements are posted (and you may sign up for e-mail alerts) on the website School’s Out (www.schoolsout.com).
