Q. What is the school’s inclement weather policy in case of
snow or other similar weather conditions?
A, The Baltimore City Public School System recognizes that
winter snow, ice, or other weather conditions can make it unsafe
for students, parents, and staff to travel to and from school.
The following procedure will be used on school days when weather
The Baltimore City Public School System’s (BCPSS) Department of
Facilities, in conjunction with the City’s Department of
Transportation and the Mass Transit Administration, will
complete a preliminary assessment of the situation by 4:30 a.m.
After considering this assessment, and the latest weather
forecasts, the BCPSS Chief Executive Officer will decide whether
to open schools on schedule, delay opening by two hours, or
cancel school for the day. This decision will be announced to
local television and radio stations and posted on the
by 5:00 a.m. School
officials may decide to delay the opening of schools by two
hours if travel conditions are potentially unsafe at 5:00 a.m.
but are expected to improve during the day. They may also delay
openings if acceptable travel conditions exist at 5:00 a.m., but
weather forecasts predict that conditions may soon worsen. In
the event of a delayed opening, all half-day, morning pre-k and
kindergarten programs will be cancelled and school breakfast
will not be served. A two-hour delay announcement may be
followed by an announcement that the BCPSS is now closed for the
day, if a reassessment of conditions so warrants. The decision
to close schools after previously announcing a two-hour school
delay will be announced to the news media and posted on the
BCPSS website by 8:00 a.m.
Q. What if weather conditions worsen during the day and
students are at school?
A. Schools will open only if the BCPSS believes students and
staff will be able to travel safely to their destinations. If
weather conditions worsen during the school day, the BCPSS may
announce an early dismissal. The early dismissal of schools
requires that schools close two and one-half hours earlier than
the regularly scheduled dismissal time. All half-day, afternoon
pre-K and kindergarten programs, and all extended-day and
after-school programs, including interscholastic athletic
events, will be cancelled. Lunch must be served in all schools.
Any decision to dismiss schools early will be announced by 10:00
a.m. to the news media.
