HOW ELSE WE ANNOUNCE WEATHER DELAYS AND CLOSURES
If St. Albans is closed or delayed because of weather, we will post a notice on the website homepage: www.stalbansschool.org, usually by 6:00 am, and we will leave a recorded message on the main school line: 202-537-6435. Delay and closure information may also be heard on NBC4 (WRC-TV) and WTOP Radio (103.5/103.9/107.7 FM).

If the school is open and operating on a regular schedule, no special announcement will be made. St. Albans does not follow the school-closing policies of the District of Columbia.
Back
Located in Washington D.C.,  St. Albans School is a private, all boys day and boarding school. For more than a century, St. Albans has offered a distinctive educational experience for young men in grades 4 through 12. While our students reach exceptional academic goals and exhibit first-rate athletic and artistic achievements, as an Episcopal school we place equal emphasis upon moral and spiritual education.
