The complete Inclement Weather and School Closing Policy can be found on page 5 of the Student and Family Handbook.
Closing of the Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School is determined by safety concerns; by the closing decisions of our cooperating facilities partners RCC and Caroline County; and by the closing decisions of our partnering school districts. CBGS may close based on conditions and the number of partnering districts that close. The CBGS Director makes this determination.
If CBGS must close school, no student would report to any of the three CBGS sites.
Please note also:
- If Rappahannock Community College is closed or delayed 2 hours, CBGS (at all sites) is closed.
- If Caroline County Public Schools are closed or delayed 2 hours, CBGS-Bowling Green will be closed. Students from Caroline, King William, and King George would not report to CBGS-Bowling Green that morning.
** If a particular school district is closed or delayed 2 hours due to inclement weather or any other circumstance which prevents normal transportation services to be provided, then students from that school district are excused from CBGS and not expected to attend. This is to insure the safety of all students.
Students should check with their home high schools for policies on reporting to school in the morning if CBGS is closed (weather-related or a scheduled closing) but their high school is open. Transportation and the availability of supervision for CBGS students who arrive earlier than the start time of their home high school classes affects district decisions in this regard. Please check with your home school district.
