CCPS Inclement Weather Procedures

Here are a few guidelines that may help to give you and others in the community a better understanding of the process we go through when weather is severe enough to possibly call off/dismiss school… just in time for the cooler weather!



Q: How is the decision made to cancel school due to inclement weather such as snow or ice?

Before making the decision to delay or cancel school due to weather, we rely on critical input from a variety of sources from both district and outside agencies. Throughout the day and night we consult with the Transportation Department about road conditions throughout Christian County.

Q: When is the decision made to cancel school?

In the event that we cancel or delay school (this can include early dismissal) the CCPS Communications Department is contacted immediately and information is disseminated to the public.

Q: How will the public be informed of the decision?

The CCPS Communications Department works diligently to notify the community of changes in the regular school schedules:

·         WHOP, WKDZ and the Kentucky New Era

·         News Channel 2, 4 5 and Fox 17 TV stations

·         Infinite Campus Message calls are sent to parents/guardians and staff members.

· and you can sign up for text messages through the website using the “Notify Me” link

·         Stay updated through the district’s Facebook & Twitter pages: Christian County Public Schools.

·         Lastly, the public may call the district’s school closing hotline at (270) 707-1900


CCPS Childcare

CCPS Childcare services are closed when the district makes the decision to cancel school due to inclement weather. This includes morning and afternoon childcare services housed in CCPS facilities. If we are on a 1-hour opening delay, childcare services in our 8 elementary school will open an hour later- same applies for a 2-hour opening delay.


CCPS Preschool

Both AM and PM preschool sessions are cancelled for any delay.


CCPS Lunch and Breakfast

On a one-hour delay, breakfast will be served to students. On a two- hour delay, breakfast will not be served. Lunch will be served on a one-hour and two-hour delay.
