Inclement Weather Policy

The Early Learning Center follows the Prince William County Public Schools emergency closing announcements as stated below:

  • If Prince William County Public Schools close (“Code Red”), then ELC is closed.
  • If Prince William County Public Schools have a “Code Orange” or a "Code Green", ELC will decide either to delay opening or close completely based on current weather and driving conditions. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
  • If ELC delays opening by 1 hour, we will open at 10:15 am. Dismissal will remain at 12:15 pm. If your child stays for Extended Day, pick up will remain at 2:00 pm.
  • If Prince William County Public Schools dismiss early for any reason, we ask that you pick up your child as soon as you are able and conditions allow for a safe pick-up.

It is the policy of MPC ELC not to make up days missed due to snow.

Closing announcements will be placed on our Home Page and Facebook page.
