Preparing for Inclement Weather

     During inclement weather, GCPS usually announces plans for a Digital Learning Day or full-day cancellation by 6 a.m. Once a decision is made, the district posts the announcement on the district website (; GCPS TV; via SchoolMessenger; on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram; and via metro-Atlanta radio and television stations. School closings are determined by the Superintendent, not by the local school.

     In cases when bad weather moves in during the school day, district leaders determine the safest and most efficient way to get students home. Should GCPS schools release early or cancel afternoon or evening activities, notifications to families are made using the communication vehicles mentioned previously.

     School is open or will remain open unless it is specifically announced otherwise. The school system does not issue announcements when school will be in session as scheduled.
