A Reminder of Our Inclement Weather Policy

On most occasions, The International School of Charlottesville follows the inclement weather policy of the Charlottesville City Public Schools.  Information on city public school closings can be obtained by checking their website at, or calling 434-245-2401.  Additionally, the school retains the right to close at any time during the day if the weather should suddenly change for the worse or if there is an equipment malfunction in the school building.  Parents or emergency contacts will be contacted via email and via text message through our emergency alert system. The first 5 days where school is cancelled due to inclement weather will be covered by virtual learning. Any additional days where school is cancelled will be made up at the end of the school year and parents will be notified of these dates.
