Weather Policy

The Early Childhood Director and BSO Executive Director reserve the right to make decisions about the weather and closings for the safety of our students and staff. Our goal is to try to open the school even on bad weather days as long as everyone is able to access the roads and building safely. There will be times when we are closed due to inclement weather for the safety of our teachers, children, and families. When MCPS has a one-hour delayed opening, we will strive to open by 8:30am for early arrival. When MCPS has a two hour delayed opening, there will be no early arrival; classes will begin at 9:30am, as scheduled.  If weather forecasts predict unsafe driving conditions developing during the school day, we reserve the right to close the school early, as needed.

For all delays, closings, and unscheduled early closings, notification will be emailed and texted via our Remind emergency notification system and through ShulCloud. Local radio and television stations are prompt at reporting information about MCPS snow closings and delayed openings. We will send an email and text message out with closing/delay information by 6:00am as needed.
