Grace Episcopal School now follows Alexandria City Public Schools Snow and Inclement Weather Policy.
If ACPS is closed, Grace is closed. **
If ACPS opens one hour late, Grace opens at 9:30 a.m. (Morning Extended Care opens at 8:30 a.m.)
If ACPS opens two hours late, Grace opens at 10:30 a.m. Preschool and Junior Kindergarten will open at 10:30 a.m. (Morning Extended Care will open at 9:30 a.m.)
** If Alexandria City Public Schools have two consecutive closures or late openings, Grace Episcopal School will utilize media announcements such as our website and the school telephone system "ParentREACH" to advise parents of the school status for that third consecutive day.
If there are major weather or other emergencies during the school day, school may close early. Parents must make every effort to have their children picked up within one hour after the first announcement is made by radio or by telephone. If the Alexandria City Public Schools system is closed for an in-service day and there is a weather emergency, Grace Episcopal School will post a notice on their web site (www.graceschoolalex.org) and will contact you via "ParentREACH", an automated, telephone notification system. Please be sure that you have someone authorized to pick up your child during emergencies and that you have listed that person on your child's Emergency Information Form. It is very important to keep these forms and phone numbers updated.
