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.
If CBGS must close school at all campuses, 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 RCC-Warsaw and RCC-Glenns sites are 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 due to inclement weather or any other circumstance which prevents normal transportation services to be provided, but CBGS is open, then students from that school district are excused from CBGS and not expected to attend. This is to insure the safety of all students.
**** Even if a student drives to CBGS, he or she should NOT risk driving in the conditions that caused that student’s school district to close. If a student’s home school division is closed or delayed due to inclement weather, attendance at CBGS is excused and students are given the opportunity to complete missed work without penalty.****
- If there is a one-hour delay for the CBGS site (RCC- Glenns/Warsaw and Bowling Green), CBGS will open one hour late.
- If the home high school opens one hour late, and CBGS opens on time, students from the home high school are to report to CBGS, one hour late.
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.
