Emergency Closing Information

Decisions regarding whether to close or delay the opening of the St. Charles Children's Learning Center due to inclement weather or other conditions are made solely at the discretion of the College of Southern Maryland and the Center.  Please note that decisions are made independently and therefore may not necessarily coincide with the decision of Charles County Public Schools and other local care providers.

When the college or the La Plata Campus is closed, all programs at the Center will be closed.  Additionally, when the college or La Plata Campus has a delayed opening, all programs will observe the delay and opening time.

There are no reimbursements for emergency closings or delayed openings.


Families seeking up-to-the-minute closing and delay information are encouraged to sign up for CSM.TXT an alert service provided through e2Campus™.  You can also subscribe to the CLC group to receive Center specific information.  Messages can be sent directly to your cell phone via text message or to your e-mail account.

Registration is free.   All cell phone text message fees will apply.  Contact your service provider for more information.
