Caroline County Public Schools Closing Information

School Delays and Closing Information

Decisions for canceling school, closing early or a delayed opening are based on many factors.  The safety and welfare of students are always the first priority for any decision. Inclement weather decisions are made based on weather reports, road conditions, and reports from VDOT, the sheriff’s department and surrounding school divisions. It is our goal to make school delay and closing decisions prior to 5:30 a.m.; however, weather conditions may change quickly requiring a change in status with little notice.  Once the decision is made an AlertNow call for all parents and guardians goes out.   The information is relayed to designated radio and television stations, and posted on the division’s website.  Parents and guardians may sign up for email or text alerts through School’s Out or Caroline Alert.

School delays and closings will be sent to the media listed below:

For parents whose students drive to school: Please consider the safety of your child when making a decision to let them drive or ride the bus during hazardous road conditions.  Due to their inexperience, many students do not know how to drive in inclement weather conditions. Our bus drivers are experienced drivers and they have a good safety record.  Parents are encouraged to consider having their student ride the bus when schools operate on a delayed opening.
