HCPSS Inclement Weather Protocols and Communication Processes, 2021-2022 School Year
August 31st, 2021
For the 2021-2022 school year, HCPSS will return to pre-COVID weather protocols. These include school closings, delays and early dismissals when necessary due to severe weather, and apply to all schools and students, including those participating in the Digital Education Center.
In times of emergencies/school closings, information will be shared with the community through the following:
- HCPSS status website
- HCPSS homepage
- HCPSS News email and text message alerts. Parents are automatically signed up for email alerts, and only once need to opt in for text messaging. All subscription information comes directly from Family File. Community members who do not have children in the school system may sign up manually.
- Twitter – @hcpss
- Weekend And Holiday Weather Closures, School Facilities/Field Closings Hotline – 410-313-6827
Schedules for pre-K/RECC late openings/early dismissals are available online.
Please note! HCPSS does not use schools-out.com, e-schoolnews.com or local media outlets for any notifications. Only the sources listed above should be used to confirm emergency information.
Full details on HCPSS emergency/weather closings can be found online.
