Linton Hall School Inclement Weather Policy

Now that winter is in full swing, we would like to remind our parents of Linton Hall School’s inclement weather policy. In general, LHS is guided by the Prince William County Schools inclement weather decisions. But please read carefully for specific policy differences and communication methods.

  • If PWC schools are closed, Linton Hall School will be closed. 
  • If PWC schools have a one or two hour delay schedule, LHS will follow suit.
    • 1 hr delay 9:00-9:15am Arrival; Extended day will begin at 8:00am
    • 2hrs delay 10:00-10:15 am Arrival; Extended day will begin at 9:00am
  • If PWC schools close early, LHS will determine a closing time and notify the school community by posting the dismissal time on the LHS website and sending a community wide email.  Please check these two sources first before calling the school office.  The website will be kept up to date as soon as decisions are made.  Extended day will end at 5:00pm.
  • If a delay occurs on a day we are scheduled for an 11:45am dismissal, there will be no school.
  • If  PWC cancels after school activities, all LHS after school activities are also cancelled.  Extended will end at 5pm.
  • All Linton Hall School parents are encouraged to subscribe to the PWC E-news.  Subscribers to e-news can choose to receive closing announcements by email, text message, or both. The sign up for e-news can be found on the PWCS website at pwcs.edu, click the PWCS E-News icon in the Quicklinks.
  • Our emergency system, School Messenger, will only be used if PWC schools are not is session and LHS has to make a decision in case of inclement weather.

THANK YOU to all the families who purchased gifts for the PWC Police!  On Wednesday, December 14th, several LHS 8th grade students made a special delivery to the police station on Freedom Center Blvd where 160 officers are stationed.  The students met the officers coming on duty for the 4:00PM shift, and had a picture taken with them.  The officers were incredibly appreciative to receive the dozens of treats and many special messages from LHS families thanking them for all they do to keep us safe in our community.  The Bristow Beat was also there to cover the special delivery and we hope an article will appear soon in their publication.  Thank you to everyone who purchased Holiday Delight items.  We hope you enjoy every last bite and have a very Merry Christmas!
