School Closing and Delay Information

MCPS delays, cancellations and closings are listed on the MCPS home page 

About Public Announcements

Information about school operations is announced publicly as soon as possible on local radio and television stations and other media. Emergency delay and closing information may be found:

If schools are closed or delayed, the announcement is made no later than 6:00 a.m. (or the night before if possible). If schools are closing early, the announcements are made by 11:00 a.m. Weekend decisions are made by the county's Interagency Coordinating Board for the use of public facilities (see Community Use of Public Facilities), but the same media list is used.
