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
  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.
