Weather-Related School Closing Procedures for Prince William Academy
Prince William Academy generally follows the Prince William County Public School System’s policy for weather-related school closings; however, we try our best to remain open for child care whenever possible.
If PW County Schools are closed due to inclement weather, Prince William Academy will also be closed for classes (daycare may be available). If PW County schools open 2 hours late due to inclement weather, Prince William Academy will do the same for the school day, but will still open child care as early as the weather allows.
Please note, we do not dismiss early due to inclement weather. However, parents are welcome to pick their children up early if they feel the roads are or will become too dangerous to navigate.
Our website will feature information about school closings or delays on the homepage. Additionally, the office will send an email to all parents. Please be sure to monitor these resources during inclement weather for the latest updates.
Child Care Policy if Schools are Closed
We try our best to open for child care even on snow days (when regular school is closed) to accommodate those parents who must report to work no matter the weather. However, safety is our primary concern and hazardous road conditions may prevent our staff members from getting to school, or arriving on time. If the roads are navigable, we will do our best to open for child care even on snow days; please call the school to make sure staff members have arrived before you leave home.
If either the Federal Government or the Prince William County Government closes due to inclement weather, we will also close entirely for the day, and cannot open for childcare.
