Delayed Opening

Posted by:

The delayed school opening time plan, when used, eliminates the need to close school for an entire day.  It should be understood that this plan would be used only when conditions justify such a delay in the opening time for schools in Anne Arundel County.

Information about school closings is announced publicly as soon as possible on various local radio and television stations and at the top of the opening page of this web site.  Information is posted as soon as it becomes available.

If conditions warrant the delayed opening time plan, the media will be requested to make this announcement: “ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY WILL OPEN ONE/TWO HOUR (S) LATER THAN THEIR USUAL OPENING TIME AND SCHOOL BUSES WILL OPERATE ONE/TWO HOUR (S) LATE.”
