Inclement Weather Policy
Delay on the first day of the program
If HCPS delays the opening of school on the first day of the program, the Harford Glen program will also
be delayed the same amount of time. For example, if HCPS delays opening of school for two hours, the bus
will pick up the fifth grade students at school at 11:00 am (or 11:30 am for fourth tier schools).
Cancellation on the first day of the program
If HCPS cancels school on the first day of the program, the Harford Glen program will also be cancelled
for that day. Whenever schools open the following day, whether it is on time or delayed opening, buses
will arrive to pick up students. If it is a delayed opening, see above.
Cancellation on the first and second day of the program
If HCPS cancels school on the first and second day of the program, the entire session will be cancelled
and make up dates will be scheduled for the end of the school year.
Threat of inclement weather during the program
If severe weather is forecast during your session, the Harford Glen staff will consult with the
elementary school administrators and the transportation division of Harford County Public Schools to
determine whether students will remain at Harford Glen, if the session will be modified, or if the
session will be cancelled and make up dates will be scheduled for the end of the school year.
