School Closings and Delayed Openings....

School Closings And Delayed Openings: In the event of a snowstorm, power outage or other inclement weather, OKECC adheres to the following policies and procedures regarding: Closings, Delays and Early Releases.

Closings on the first day only: If Montgomery County Public School "MCPS" announces they will be closed, then OKECC will follow MCPS for the first day only (including decisions regarding afternoon and evening activities).

Closings after the first day: On the second consecutive and subsequent consecutive days that MCPS announces they will be closed, then the ECC will make an independent decision and notify* families by 6:30am. If notification* is not posted by 6:30am, then follow MCPS.

Delays on all days: In the event that MCPS announces a delayed opening, then the ECC will make an independent decision and notify* families by 6:30am. If notification* is not posted by 6:30am, then follow MCPS. If the ECC has a delay, then both the Half Day and the Full Day programs will start at 9:30am and there is no Early Drop-off program.

Early Releases: In the event that MCPS announces an early release or dismissal, then the ECC will make an independent decision and notify* families by 12pm. If notification* is not posted by 12pm, then follow MCPS. If the ECC has an early release or dismissal, then both the Half Day and the Full Day ECC programs close at 3pm (unless notified otherwise due to severe conditions). All enrichments will take place as scheduled.

 

*ECC Community will be notified by the applicable 6:30am or 12pm deadline, as follows (in no specific order):
a) Blast email to the ECC Community
b) Message posted on the emergency banner of the Ohr Kodesh website homepage
c) Alert on WTOP.com and WTOP radio announcements
 

Default: In case of power, phone and/or internet outages that prevent us from sending out or posting a message by the noted time, then please follow MCPS decision and our applicable guidelines as your default.

In all cases, ECC members are encouraged to make the best decision for their family, as based on immediate surroundings and comfort levels on the road.
