Inclement Weather

Although we hope we won’t have to use them, take a look at page 8 for a refresher on LLI’s inclement weather cancellation policy. Basically, we follow Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), i.e., schools closed, LLI closed; schools 2-hours late, morning classes cancelled; and early dismissal, afternoon classes cancelled.
