As the wintry weather we experienced on Dec. 8 reminds us, it’s important to prepare for winter conditions and their impact on the school day.
Here are some things to remember about school cancellations for inclement weather:
— When bad weather causes school to be cancelled or dismissed early, public announcements are made on GCPS TV, on the school system’s website, on Twitter and Facebook, through School Messenger calls and optional texts, and via metro-Atlanta radio and television stations.
— Full-day cancellations usually are announced by 6 a.m.
— GCPS announces only school closing information. The school system does not issue an announcement when school will be in session as scheduled.
