Inclement Weather Policy 
The following is an excerpt from our Parent Handbook.
For the full Emergency Response Plan, please consult that document.
The following is a general policy reflecting our decision-making process.  We must deal with any incident on a case-by-case basis. In any situation, it is up to the parent to make the final decision as to what is best for the child.

  1. In the case of an emergency or inclement weather, we will notify parents through email, Facebook, and the message on our answering machine.
  2. The EEC follows Prince George’s County Public Schools' (PGCPS) policy for closing SCHOOL due to inclement weather.
  3. CHILD CARE closings will be assessed by the school director. (HINT: If the federal gov't is closed, we will probably close.)
  4. If schools are delayed, we will open CHILD CARE ONE HOUR LATE at 8 am and school will begin on time at 8:45 am.  (This is a change in policy for the 2017-2018 school year.) 
  5. If county schools close early, there are NO afternoon classes and Kindergarten will dismiss as soon as possible. Our child care program will remain open, but we ask that you pick up your child A.S.A.P. because our staff needs to get home safely as well. 
  6. If PGCPS close for any reason other than inclement weather, the EEC program will operate normally as long as we are not impacted by this problem. (i.e.: bomb threats, shootings, tornadoes, earthquakes)
