January 3, 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians:

On behalf of the Prince Edward County Public School Division, I wish you and your families a productive and prosperous 2017.  This is the time of year that we have a renewed resolve, energy, and commitment to our students’ well-being and academic successes.  It is also that time of year when the winter weather can be unpredictable and sometimes hazardous. 

In preparation for possible inclement weather during this season, please note the following information regarding school delays and closures:

  • After an assessment of the county road conditions by designated personnel, the superintendent will decide the status of school delays and/or closings. Please note that, although the roads may be in good condition in your neighborhood, we must consider all of the roads on which our buses travel throughout the county.  The safety of all of our children and staff members is the priority.

  • Generally, information regarding delays and closures will be shared by 5:30 a.m., and no later than 6:30 a.m.  In the case of early dismissal due to worsening weather conditions, information will be shared by 11:30 a.m.  Designated personnel will contact the following communication outlets to ensure accurate and timely reporting regarding the school status:

  • If schools are closed due to emergency weather conditions, all after-school and evening activities are cancelled.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our children, and, again, we look forward to a dynamic year.


Barbara A. Johnson, Ed. D.
