School Closure Policy Due to Inclement Weather

It is our sincere hope that we will be able to remain open throughout the year. However, there may be conditions that force us to close for safety.

Our policy regarding closings is determined by a number of factors:

  • If the Federal Government is closed, generally the Preschool will also be closed.
  • If the roads surrounding the Preschool are determined to be hazardous, or if indications are that it will not remain safe to drive all day, we will close the Preschool when necessary for everyone's safety.

If we decide to have a delayed opening or not open due to inclement weather, we will put a message at the following numbers: (202) 777-3278 and (202) 777-3271 after 6:00 AM as well as on WTOP radio (103.5 FM) and internet site.

If we begin experiencing inclement weather during the day, we will attempt to remain open. Should we determine that it is necessary to close, we will notify parents and try to give you two hours in which to arrive. It is important for you to arrange to pick up your child as soon as possible, as chances are that weather conditions will continue to deteriorate.

CampMinder System

The Preschool is excited to announce that we will be using a new online database (CampMinder) in the 2013-2014 school year. CampMinder will allow the preschool families to have easy access to tuition receipts, necessary paperwork, and enrichment class registration.
