School Closure Policy
Snow Closings and Delays
Seton generally follows Prince William County Schools as to whether to close school or delay opening due to weather, but not according to the same time schedule and under the discretion of the director. For any delayed opening Seton classes begin at 9:30 a.m. If a Late opening occurs on a Monday Mass day, Seton’s classes will still begin at 9:30 a.m. Students are not required to attend Mass on such days. If Seton School is in Session and weather gets inclement, Seton School will never close early even if Prince William County does. Parents are welcome to come pick up their child OR call the school to say their child may drive home.
On inclement weather days when public schools are closed for other reasons (such as a teacher work day) or if Seton decides to stay open when Prince William County Schools are closed, Seton will notify families by an automated phone message, a Jupiter Ed message, and on the setonschool.net website. The home phone number is used unless you contact Mrs. Cooper to give her an additional phone number(s).
