This page allows parents to get quick access to some common school policies. For more detailed information and all school policies, please read the parent/student handbook.
St. Anthony School follows Fairfax County School policy decisions on inclement weather, including closings, delayed openings, early closings and cancellation of after school and evening activities. All decisions on closings and delayed openings are made by 6:00 AM. For early closings, Fairfax County generally makes a decision between 10-11 AM. In the event of inclement weather, it is the parent’s responsibility to listen to the radio or TV stations for Fairfax County announcements concerning late openings and early closings. WTOP News is available at 103.5 FM, 103.9 FM, 107.7 FM, and online at www.wtop.com.
Download the document below for the FULL policy for the various scenarios for closings and delays including 2 hour delay, cancellation of after-school activities, and cancellation of evening activities. Print and post at home for quick reference. Please read the policy carefully, as our school makes separate decisions for extreme cold weather (below zero) closures not related to traffic and road conditions.
When possible, information will also be posted on the school website, Facebook and Instagram sites as soon as possible, but please rely on local TV or radio stations that report on FCPS closings and delays. Due to technical difficulties, updates may not be possible. You can also sign up for Fairfax County Schools emergency notifications on the link below for inclement weather notifications.
St. Anthony School has generated parent/student handbook to document Diocesan and school-specific policies that students and parents are expected to follow. In an effort to be green, our parent/student handbooks are only posted online. Please note that handbooks have changes every year in many areas.
Below are the handbook agreement form and handbook.
All parents are required by the Diocese to read the parent/student handbook and sign an acknowledgment form.
For the safety of the students, parents are asked to follow the morning and afternoon car line procedures. Faculty will be outside directing cars and drivers should follow the directions of the faculty at all times. Below are the detailed instructions along with diagrams.
