LANK Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather closings, delayed openings, or early closings, LANK normally follows the decisions made by Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS). If FCPS closes, so does LANK.  However, during the school year 2020-2021 LANK will be responsible for making weather related closing decisions independently of FCPS.  Please check your email to find a message From the Directors  as early as 6:00 am the morning in question.  Whenever possible, we will notify our community the night before.
Our FCPS policy: ( in a non-Covid year)
When LANK  announces a delayed opening of two hours, we will have the following schedule:

AM Session: 10:30am-12:30pm
Lunch Bunch: 12:35pm-1:30pm (cancelled 2020-2021)
PM Session: 1:45pm-3:45pm
AM Explore and More: 12:35pm-3:45pm

If Fairfax County announces an early closing of two hours, LANK’s PM session will be cancelled, and all morning lunch bunch children will be dismissed at 12:30pm.

For all school closings or delays, please check your email for announcements directly from LANK.


If the weather becomes inclement during the course of any school session, please keep in mind that the LANK parking lot may become icy and  difficult to navigate.  For your safety and that of our children and staff, you may be directed to park elsewhere and walk to LANK in order to pick up your children.


Every effort will be made to dismiss quickly and safely and your help and patience will be appreciated.
