• Guilford County Schools is dedicated to promoting the safety and wellbeing of students and staff. In the event of inclement weather, the district has thorough plans for determining if schools should be in session or if a delay, early dismissal or closure should be issued. While following these plans and evaluating local weather reports and road closures, we use our best judgment in the interest of student and staff safety.

    GCS follows Board of Education Policy 5050/7550 and Regulation 5050/7550-R when determining inclement-weather plans.
