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’s schedule of school and activity cancellations for inclement weather.

The Institute may remain open for informal practice from time to time. However, use your own best judgment when considering travel, call ahead, and assess your driving route for safety.
