February 17, 18 and 19, 2010 - Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) will be on a two-hour delay primarily due to the severe snow and ice conditions of sidewalks and bus stops in the surrounding neighborhoods of schools.
All school activities, with the exception of athletics, have been cancelled through the week. Meals for students including breakfast and lunch will be available at schools. View Procedures for Delayed Openings
Bus transportation will be provided for all student riders. However, if a bus stop is inaccessible because of the snow, parents are asked to call the PGCPS Transportation department at 301-952-6570 to receive an alternate bus stop. Information on bus stop changes will also be available on PGCPS TV channel 96 (Verizon) and channel 38 (Comcast).
Members of the Prince George’s County Police Department will have increased presence at heavy traffic areas to assist students and parents to navigate around the snow and ice while walking and driving to school. More information is available in the press release.
