OLGC Inclement Weather Policy

Check webpage for updates.

In case of inclement weather, we follow the Fairfax County Public Schools schedule which is announced on TV, radio, and  We will also post the announcement on the school and church websites.  This includes closures, delayed openings, or afternoon/evening activities being canceled. 

On full closure days, OLGC will follow the announcement and take the day off as a snow day.  If inclement weather days become numerous or run consecutively, the decision for OLGC School to e-Learn will be made by the OLGC Administrative Team and that decision will be communicated to OLGC School families via email and text.  Announcements will also be posted on the school website.  When OLGC School is closed, all activities on campus are canceled for the entire day, except for the celebration of Mass (the church will be closed after Mass).  All are advised to use extreme caution when making the decision about attending Mass and keep in mind your personal safety and the safety of others.  If you decide to attend Mass please enter through the Niblick entrance.  The lower parking lot and bell tower lot will be plowed first. 

All Zoom scheduled classes, meetings, and activities will take place no matter the weather, as long as the facilitator has electricity and internet. 

On 2-hour delay days, OLGC School will follow the announcement and open at 10:00 a.m.  Students may be dropped off no earlier than 9:30 a.m. and we will follow the inclement weather carpool process.  OLGC Church offices will open at 11:00 a.m. and any activities scheduled after that time will proceed as scheduled. 

If FCPS is not in session to make an inclement weather decision, OLGC will make the decision.  OLGC School parents will receive an email message from OLGC on school days and announcements will also be posted on the school and church websites.
