How are Weather-Related Decisions Made?

  • Weather Related Decisions - Making the Call with Arrow leading to video

    When inclement weather occurs, AACPS 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.
