School Closing Information

There is no school closing information to report at this time. 


Hanover County Public Schools makes every effort to promptly notify families of any unplanned delays, closings, or early dismissals that may be necessary. While we base our decision on a variety of factors, the safety of our students is always our first priority and consideration.

There are a variety of ways to receive important updates regarding school closings.

  • Monitor social media (Facebook and Twitter), local television and radio stations, and Hanover’s TV99.
  • Sign up for eConnect to receive emails regarding school closings. 
  • Call (804) 277-4960 to hear a message that contains the latest information on school closings.
