Inclement Weather Policy

The Center’s operating status is guided by the University’s inclement weather policy. Due to the unique compliance obligations of operating a Child Development Center and maintaining required staff to child ratios, while ensuring the safety of our staff, our operating status may deviate slightly from the University’s as indicated below:

University Status: What this Means for Hoya Kids:

Open

Open on time

Open with liberal leave and instructional continuity

Will make all efforts to safely open but may open later than our normal scheduled 7:30am opening time or close earlier than our normal scheduled 6:00pm closing time. In these instances, the decision to open late or close early will be made at the discretion of the Center Director. Changes will be communicated through HOYAlert and email by 8:00am for delayed opening or, in the case of early closure, as soon as possible.

Open with delayed arrival, instructional continuity and liberal leave (A designated arrival time will be communicated)

In these instances, the decision to open late or close early will be made at the discretion of the Center Director. Changes will be communicated through HOYAlert and email by 8:00am for delayed opening or, in the case of early closure, as soon as possible.

Closed at the university-designated “early departure” time. Our late pick-up policy will take effect at the designated closure time and late fees will be charged.

Notification of changes in the university’s operating status will be sent as alerts by text messaging and email, via HOYAlert. The university’s operating status can be accessed any time by calling the university operating status line at (202) 687-SNOW (7669) or visiting the university operating status page.  

Each parent will additionally be added to a Hoya Kids-specific HOYAlert group upon enrollment to the Center so that specific details of our operating status can be communicated to parents, even those who are not affiliated with the university.
