A reminder about GCPS winter weather procedures...
While we hope the wintry weather in the forecast misses us, the GCPS 2018-19 school calendar includes two make-up days to address school days missed due to inclement weather. In addition to these days, GCPS also has the option of making up days missed due to inclement weather using Digital Learning Days. Should a decision be made to cancel school, students, parents, and staff will be notified via SchoolMessenger of the closing and if the day is a Digital Learning Day.
A Celebration of Service!
