School Closure Procedures
This page is used to communicate information about school closures or other emergencies. Due to our location, weather conditions at AIS can sometimes be very different than those in the Vienna’s inner city and we often receive heavier snowfall during winter months.
Generally, school will be held when the school buses can safely transport students to school. When weather conditions are such that transporting students safely is not possible, school will be delayed or cancelled. The Director will consult with the Business Manager and bus company to determine whether school should convene. If school is in session, an administrative team will assist in making a decision about closing school.
Once the decision is made to cancel or close school for the day, it will be posted on the AIS website, sent via e-mail, and sent via SMS messages.
If school has not been cancelled or scheduled for early dismissal, parents are encouraged to make individual decision whether school attendance is a priority.
