Weather-related closures and delayed openings are as follows:
If the Federal Government is CLOSED, RCC is CLOSED.
If Fairfax County Schools are CLOSED, RCC will OPEN AT 8AM, AND PDP is CLOSED.
If Fairfax County Schools are DELAYED, RCC will OPEN ON TIME AT 6:30 AM AND PDP will be held from 11am to 1pm.
Closures and delays will be communicated via RCC website, email, and NBC 4 closure announcements. Parents are asked to call the center by 9:00 a.m. if their child will be absent. The Part Day Preschool program follows the Fairfax County Public Schools calendar.
Please see the RCC calendar for scheduled school closing.
In an unusually severe storm, families should either telephone the Center to confirm that staff has arrived or be prepared to stay with their children until a sufficient number of staff arrive; this is particularly true for families who arrive during the early morning hours. Families should recognize that the safety of our staff and children is our first priority. In the event of an unusually severe storm, be aware that RCC will not be open without a sufficient number of staff. Further, if a bad storm occurs during the day, please try to leave work early. If you will be late, please call; late fee charges apply.
Schoolage children enrolled in the before school programs are cared for during delayed school openings without an additional charge. Schoolage children enrolled in after school programs are cared for during early closings without an additional charge. One public school snow day is included in the tuition for children enrolled in after-school programs. For snow days used beyond one, fees are listed in the “Additional tuition” section of this handbook.
Children need to bring appropriate clothing for outdoor play in snow. This includes coats, boots, gloves or mittens, hats, and snow pants. Children without suitable attire will not be allowed to play outside in the snow. Schoolage children may bring snow saucers made of plastic.
