Closings: Inclement Weather Policy

HOW DO I KNOW IF THE STUDIO IS CLOSED DUE TO BAD WEATHER?

1.  We match the decisions of the D.C. Public Schools.  
  • If D.C. schools are closed for the full day due to snow, ice, etc. etc., we are closed.
  • If D.C. schools are open for any portion of the day, regardless of delayed/late opening or early closing, we are open.
    • Thus, if D.C. schools have a delayed/late opening, ballet is still "on" for the day since the schools are thus open in the afternoon and our classes are in the afternoon.  
    • And, should D.C. schools have a very rare mid-day closing due to bad weather, we are still open since some children routinely walk over to the studio on their own directly after school.  We will not leave anyone out in the cold, and we know that you will get here as soon as you are able.  
  • If you live in another jurisdiction than D.C., always listen/watch on radio/TV/etc. for not only your own child's school closing, but for those in D.C. as well.
2. What if I'm not sure?  What if I want to double-check to be certain?
  • Best way to get the direct word is to "Like" The Ballet Studio/Cecchetti Institute on Facebook.  We don't do a lot of posting, so your News Feed won't be inundated all the time.
