    In case of hazardous weather, extension center classes will be cancelled at local public school locations when the Prince George’s County Board of Education announces that the public schools will be closed. Other sites, such as Joint Base Andrews, the Laurel College Center and the University Town Center will follow the Largo campus weather schedule.
    If the Largo campus closes as a result of inclement weather, classes at extension centers and sites will be cancelled.
     
    Delayed College Openings:  
    When the college announces a delayed opening, all classes with at least 45 minutes of class time remaining at the time of the opening will be held. For example, in the event of a 10 a.m. opening, a 9:30–10:45 a.m. class will be held. This procedure applies to all classes.
