Emergency Weather Policy
Good Shepherd Preschool follows Montgomery County Public Schools when determining whether to open on days with inclement weather.
You can find MCPS's emergency closure information on their website. Check with the site or with local radio and television stations for the latest school closure announcements. Good Shepherd will post information about closures to its web site home page, Twitter feed, and Facebook page as soon as possible after MCPS makes its decision.
General Rules for Emergency Closures
If MCPS is closed due to emergency weather conditions, so is Good Shepherd Preschool.
If MCPS has a delayed opening, Good Shepherd will open for classes at 10:30 AM. Dismissal is at the usual time. Afternoon classes will meet at their normal times.
If MCPS announces a general emergency early release for any reason, including inclement weather, all classes will end at 12 PM. (including Lunch Plus Enrichment). Afternoon classes will not be held.
GSLP Family Events
Should a family event scheduled during school hours fall on a day when GSLP has a delayed opening or is closed due to emergency weather conditions, the family event scheduled for that day will be canceled. If the event is rescheduled for another day, GSLP will provide information on its website about the new date and time as soon as possible.
Family events scheduled outside of school hours, such as on evenings or weekends, may continue as scheduled depending on conditions at the time. Check the GSLP website for the latest information on event statuses.
