Inclement Weather Policy
The following are GCPS procedures for inclement weather and how the school system handles school cancellations.
GCPS schools and facilities may close in the event of hazardous weather or other emergencies that present threats to the safety of students, staff, or school property.
If bad weather causes the school to be canceled or dismissed early, public announcements will be made on GCPS TV, on the school system’s website (www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us), on Twitter and Facebook, through SchoolMessenger calls and optional texts, and via metro-Atlanta radio and television stations. Full-day cancellations usually are announced by 6 a.m.
GCPS TV can be found on the following Gwinnett County cable channels:
- AT&T - Listed under Local Government
- Charter - Channel 22
- Comcast - Channel 24 or 26
Digital Learning Day Information:
In the event that a school closure is necessary, the school district could opt to hold a Digital Learning Day rather than using an inclement weather make-up day as it is so early in the school year. If the decision is made to hold a Digital Learning Day, that will be communicated and school and district processes for online learning will go into effect.
