Inclement Weather Policy

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 Severe Weather dismissed early, public announcements will be made on GCPS TV, on the school system’s website (, 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
