GFCC Weather Policy

GFCC Weather Policy

(for sleet, snow, hurricanes, or tornadoes)


Since we follow the WCPSS calendar as closely as possible, we suggest the following policy:


  • If Wake County schools open 1 hour late, GFCC opens 1 hour late and all classes stay until 1:00 with lunch.

  • If Wake County schools open 2 hours late, GFCC opens 2 hours late and all classes stay until 1:00 with lunch.

  • If Wake County schools open 3 hours late, GFCC is closed.

  • If Wake County schools close, GFCC is closed.


On days when all classes stay until 1:00 with lunch, please send your child with their lunch – no peanut products please.


  • If Wake Co schools makes a necessary decision to close school earlier than their usual dismissal, GFCC parents will need to pick up their GFCC child by 12:00 or first, before picking up their siblings in Wake Co schools. There is no Lunch Bunch and no carpool. Parents need to walk in and get their children.


  • Children will not be released to ride with persons other than parents or regular carpool drivers, unless written or phone permission is given. If you ask someone different to pick up your child, please call (919-469-0140) and tell us about this decision. If you are not able to reach us, the person picking up should come by the office and give us your number so that we may call you to verify the arrangement.


If a decision is made to delay our start time or close for the day, we will post it on Facebook and the News and Events page of our website.
