School Closing Information

VFMA&C is a residential campus, and every effort will be made to continue under normal operation. However, as we have experienced in past winter seasons, if weather conditions are unfavorable, the emergency weather notification procedures will be activated.

When there is a concern or threat of inclement weather, the school administration will notify staff, faculty, cadets of the procedures that will be put in place during the weather event.

Notification Procedures

VFMA&C Website:

Notifications will be posted on the VFMA&C website no later than 5:30AM.

Alert Now Employee Notification:

The Department of Human Resources will launch the “Alert Now” notification system with updates on the status of school openings, closings, or delayed openings no later than 5:30AM. To receive these notifications, please be sure you have provided Human Resources with your most up to date contact information (i.e. cell phone, home phone, and/or personal email addresses.)


VFMA&C Email:

Throughout the day, emails will be sent via the VFMA&C Employee Distribution List with updates on the status of campus.

Full Closure:

If we require a full school closure, essential personnel will be required to report to campus.

Two Hour Delay:
In the situation where a two-hour delayed opening is activated, classes for both the Academy and College will begin at 10:00AM. Staff and Faculty are expected to arrive by this time.
