Holy Family Catholic School normally follows the directives issued for Prince William County Schools (PWCS) when road or weather conditions or other emergency situations are severe, making it unsafe to operate school. You can log on to http://www.pwcs.edu/ to see the latest closing information. You can also sign up to receive alerts to your cell phone or email.
Our primary tool for communicating emergency information is through the SchoolMessenger System. To insure that our SchoolMessenger System is updated with correct contact information we ask that our parents and teacher’s please provide our school office with updated, correct contact information at the beginning of the school year, and when your contact information changes.
In the morning if it is necessary to close school that decision will be made by 6:00 AM. We will communicate any such decisions via email, phone, and text; we will also post any announcement to the school website and the school Facebook page and Twitter.
When PWC schools are delayed for one hour, HFCS Grades K-8 will also open an hour late, unless otherwise specified by our School Messenger System. When PWC schools are delayed for two hours, HFCS Grades K-8 will also open two hours late, unless otherwise specified by School Messenger.
If there is a 2-hour delayed opening for the elementary school, the preschool will begin on a 2-hour delayed schedule, or 10:30 am. The Afternoon Enrichment and the “Lunch Bunch” programs will be in session on these days and lunch will be served.
