UPDATED INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
You may find our inclement weather policy and schedules here. Please note that with the implementation of our new schedule this year, we have adjusted the delayed opening policy. Historically a delayed opening has meant a 2-hour delay. A delayed opening now means we will begin the school day at 10:00 a.m. Please review each division’s plan below for a 10:00 a.m. start. As a reminder, now that the weather has turned cold, school employees are asked to please refrain from parking on school property when school is closed for snow until after the Maintenance Department has properly cleared the walks and parking lots. If your vehicle is parked on campus while clearing is occurring, you will be asked to please remove your vehicle. Please also make every effort to remove your car after the school day. This is also for safety reasons, so please be mindful of this request.

Anonymous Messaging Service for Students
We are committed to fostering a healthy community for students and want to create a variety of pathways for students to reach out to adults in our community. With that in mind, we are providing a program called TXTABOUTIT. Developed in 2005, TXTABOUTIT is a secure anonymous messaging service for students. This service is a preventative solution focused on bridging the communication gap between students, peers, and faculty, providing assistance around a variety of topics from stress and anxiety to social issues concerning peers. All students have access to it on school days from 7:30 AM-5:30 PM. More information about TXTABOUTIT can be found here
or by reaching out to Ms. McGuire at 703-212-2748.
