How do I find out if schools are closed/closing?

School closing announcements are made on:

  • The CCPS Web Site Home Page (this can be accessed through the CCPS Phone App as well).
  • Email notification system (to register click here)
  • Local Television Stations 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 11
  • Local Radio Stations WTOP (103.5 FM), 97.7 FM, 98.3 FM, 102.9 FM, WBAL 1090AM

 

The School Board makes every effort to make a decision regarding delays and closures by 5:00 a.m. In order to start schools on time, the first buses must be on the road by 6:00 a.m. In order to close schools two hours early, every effort will be made to make a decision by 10:45 a.m.
