Weather Policy

Gonzaga generally follows the decisions of the Montgomery County Public School system for weather-related closings or delays.  If Montgomery County Public Schools cancel classes, Gonzaga's classes are also cancelled.  If Montgomery County has a delayed opening of any length, Gonzaga opens at 9:30am. 
 
Gonzaga reserves the right to broadcast its own announcements should conditions dictate. If Gonzaga chooses to depart from the decision of Montgomery County Maryland Public Schools, sufficient notice will be given to students and families via email broadcast, social media messaging, and a post on Gonzaga's home page.
 
On days when access to campus is restricted due to weather related or other emergencies, the Headmaster may call for “Continuity of Learning” (COL) days.  On such days, it is the expectation that faculty and students are actively engaged with one another through the use of Canvas. On these days, testing may occur and new assignments may be assigned and due. Notice will be given to students and families via email and Canvas broadcast.
 
Because Gonzaga is a regional school, there may be great variance in the weather conditions affecting our students.  Parents should always use their own judgment about allowing their sons to travel.
