Weather Closing Policy

If St. Albans is closed, delayed, or switching to online learning because of weather, we will send parents an email and post a notice on the website homepage, usually by 6:00 am. For snow delays and closures, we will also leave a recorded message on the main school line, 202-537-6435, and report to NBC4 (WRC-TV) and WTOP Radio (103.5/103.9/107.7 FM). This decision will be reached after a thorough examination of current and predicted weather conditions, and after consulting with the heads of NCS and Beauvoir.

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.
