Inclement Weather Policy


As occurred this morning and with the forecasted weekend weather, we wanted to reiterate our inclement weather policy. Please note the following:

MDSA follows the policy of Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) in regard to inclement weather and resulting closings, early dismissals, and delayed openings.

Please visit the BCPS website for morning closures and/or delayed openings. You may also want to consider downloading the BCPS app which can provide text message alerts for delays and closures.  We will not send an Emergency Alert notification for morning delays and closures.  This morning’s alert was issued because the exam schedule necessitated a change to the dismissal time. 

We will send an Emergency Alert if MDSA needs to close, delay, or dismiss early for an issue concerning the MDSA campus.

Please activate your Edline account which will enable you to track your student's academic progress, contact teachers, and receive emergency alerts and school communications. If you need assistance accessing your code, please contact Pam Tibbo at
