Weather Policies

Inclement Weather Policy

On days of snowfall, emergencies or other hazardous weather conditions, GRACE will notify families, faculty and staff of closings and re-openings as soon as decisions are made.  We will generally, but not always, follow the decisions made by the Wake County Public School System.  This notification will initially be sent via our Parent Alert system and will also be posted on the school website (in GRACE News), on the GRACE Facebook page, on the GRACE twitter account and on WRAL (TV Channel 5).

  • Make-up days will follow a schedule prescribed by the administration and the Board.
  • 7th – 12th grade students will be responsible for all pre-assigned work and for online turn-ins.
  • AP students will communicate with and may meet for online classes with teachers.

Please note that GRACE is often able to return to school earlier than the Wake County schools and will use the Parent Alert system, email and this website to communicate this information.  Please make sure that your email and phone numbers are correct in RenWeb so that you receive this information as it is released.

Athletics & Inclement Weather

In the event that adverse weather threatens a practice or game, the athletic director will make the decision about canceling the event in question and notify the GRACE office no later than 1:00 p.m. of that day. Away games are excluded from this policy because the decision to cancel rests with the other team. Parents are expected to check their account to verify the cancellation status when weather appears to be an issue.
