Inclement Weather

The Basilica School of Saint Mary follows Alexandria City Public School (ACPS) policy regarding inclement weather closings, unless otherwise informed. In the event of emergency school closings, all day and evening school activities will also be cancelled.

  • Parents and guardians will be notified of all closings and delays through the school's Opt-In School Emergency Notification System.
  • If ACPS has a one hour delay means our school day begins at 9:00 am; a two hour delay means our school day begins at 10:00 am.
  • If Alexandria City Public Schools are closed, there will be no pre-k session. If ACPS is delayed, Pre-K will begin at 10:00 and be dismissed at 2:00. Please pack a lunch for your child. Milk or juice will be provided.

Parents must make the final determination with regard to the safety and welfare of their children. If you feel it is unsafe to drive, please notify the main office that your child/children will be absent.
