When weather or other emergency circumstances dictate, a delayed school opening may be published or implemented.  In some instances, publishing a 2 hour delay gives school authorities extended time to further evaluate conditions which may ultimately close school for the day.  Parents and significant others should be alert to related school closing information and timely updates as they may occur. 

*Excerpt from the Code of Virginia 22.1-98:

When severe weather conditions or other emergency situations have resulted in the closing of a school or the schools in a school division for five or fewer days, the school or the schools in the school division shall make up all missed days by adding teaching days to the school calendar or extending the length of the school day;

When severe weather conditions or other emergency situations have resulted in the closing of a school or the schools in a school division for six days or more, the school or the schools in the school division shall make up the first five days plus one day for each two days missed in excess of the first five by adding teaching days to the school calendar or extending the length of the school day.
