School Closings



Charlottesville Catholic is an independent school and does not fall under either county or city regulations for school closings or delays. The decision is made at the discretion of the principal.

In cases where school closing is necessary due to inclement weather, Charlottesville Catholic School will inform local radio and TV channels. These are: WINA (AM 1070), WKAV (AM 1400), WQMZ (FM 95.1), WWWV (97.5 FM), and on TV: NBC, CBS, and ABC. The school’s automated voicemail system will provide school closing information as soon as feasible.

School closing information will also be posted directly to the Charlottesville Catholic website in addition to the local TV news websites.

View the web based closing lists:

NBC 29 (usually on their main page or under “news”)
Charlottesville Newsplex (FOX, ABC,CBS)

Using these links is often the easiest way to determine if Charlottesville Catholic has been closed.

If there no notice of closure on the school website, or if you do not see “Charlottesville Catholic School” specifically represented on the television news or hear a Charlottesville Catholic School announcement on the local radio stations, assume that we are open on time for that day. If your child will not be at school, please call the front desk. Due to the wide range of road conditions during inclement weather, a child will be excused for tardies, early pick-ups or absences when a parent determines that their particular route of travel is unsafe.

In the event of a 2-hour delay, our doors open between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. Please do not drop off your child for before 9:30; there will be no supervision for your child.

It is important to note that the After-School Program will not be provided when school has been cancelled or closed early due to inclement weather.
