Closings and Delayed Openings: C/A follows Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) regarding school closings and delayed openings due to inclement weather.
Early Closings: C/A decisions regarding closing early do not mirror ACPS announcements. Rather, such decisions are made at the discretion of the Head of School. If we do decide to remain open until regular dismissal time, parents who are concerned about the inclement weather may collect their students early.
Parent Notifications: Any time there is a weather-related or other change in schedule or in the case of a disaster or emergency, parents will receive a text and/or email through the Rediker Notification system. The alerts are sent to designated parent phone numbers and email addresses within the Rediker student database. That is why it is important that parents keep their contact information up-to-date. C/A will also immediately post the information on our website, Facebook, Twitter and Rediker page.
When in Doubt: Parents are encouraged to check the front page of the C/A website and their Rediker alert notifications for the most accurate and up-to-date information on decisions regarding weather-related closings, delays or early release.
