Inclement Weather Policy

Classes will be cancelled whenever adverse weather conditions are predicted that would make travel hazardous. As a general rule, since it may be difficult to notify students beforehand in a timely manner, the Institute will follow Fairfax County Public School’s schedule of school closings for inclement weather. For inclement weather during weekends, we will adhere to the policy used by Fairfax County Department of Parks and Recreation for classes conducted at County RECenters.
