Weather Policy

Bishop Ireton High School follows Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) with regard to a delayed opening, early closure, or cancellation of school due to inclement weather. In the event of any other decision, the school will notify the following broadcast outlets of our intentions:  WUSA-TV (Channel 9), WRC-TV (Channel 4), WJLA-TV (Channel 7), WTTG-TV (Channel 5), and WTOP AM/FM. An email notification will be sent to parents and a message will be placed on Bishop Ireton's website.  

During a two-hour delay, doors open for students at 8:55 a.m., the first bell is at 9:40 a.m., and 1st period begins at 9:55 a.m. When a delayed opening is announced during examinations, the published examination schedule will be delayed two hours (i.e., examinations scheduled for 8:00 a.m. will be given at 10:00 a.m). If school is cancelled during  examinations, the examinations scheduled for the cancelled day will be administered on the next school day. If school is dismissed early or cancelled, all co-curricular activities are also cancelled.
