School Closing Policy

Covington Latin School's policy for inclement weather:

Delays, cancellations or early dismissals will be:

  1. Communicated through our emergency phone contact system
  2. Listed at the top of the Announcements page or facebook.com/covingtonlatin
  3. Listed on local television and radio in the school closing network

In the event of a delayed opening, we typically attempt to limit the delay to 60 or 90 minutes to offer extended travel time to drivers. In the event of a 60 minute delay, the building will be accessible to students beginning at 8:15 am, and in the event of a 90 minute delay, students may arrive as early as 8:45 am.  

Bearing this in mind, the decision to attend school and any driving decisions therein are ultimately left to the parents.
