County IEP Inclement Weather Procedures

Participants in County IEP Team Meetings should be aware that meetings may be cancelled due to inclement weather. In the event of school delays or early releases due to weather conditions, parents and other team members should refer to the following:

  • On days when there is a 2-hour delay, all meetings prior to 11:00 will be rescheduled.

  • On days when there is a 1-hour delay, all meetings prior to 10:00 will be rescheduled.

  • On days when there is an early release-due to weather related conditions-all meetings that take place during the afternoon will be rescheduled.

Parents and other team members are advised to call The Department of Special Education at (301) 475-5511 Ext. 32206 for the most current meeting status.

For Child Find and Infant and Toddler appointments, the same considerations on inclement weather days will apply. Families will be contacted by their service providers when schools are in session after the delay to arrange to reschedule the meetings and/or appointments. Families are encouraged to contact their service providers to confirm any appointments that are scheduled after the delayed openings or early closures.

Current school status is posted on the main page of the St. Mary's County Public Schools website and is broadcasted on local radio and television stations.
