What Time Does School Close on an Early Release Day?

SSDS follows the Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) policy for inclement weather and school delays/closings. In general, when MCPS is closed due to inclement weather, SSDS will also be closed. When MCPS opens one hour late, SSDS will also open one hour late; two hours late, SSDS will open two hours late. Classes that normally end at 12:30 pm will stay in session one hour longer, until 1:30 pm. Early Bird will still be available but delayed accordingly. When MCPS announces an early closure, SSDS will monitor the situation and make a decision separate from MCPS on a case-by-case basis. Little University and Extended Day programs will be cancelled for the afternoon if SSDS closes early. It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to know about early closings. While SSDS follows MCPS’ decisions on closures and delays, SSDS will not make up days missed due to inclement weather. Announcements regarding closures/delays will be sent in a school-wide text and email.
