Cedar Lane News & Events

School Calendar 2019-20


For weather emergencies, our school will primarily follow the Fairfax County Public School System. Should Fairfax County close school for the day, Cedar Lane will most likely be closed. If Fairfax County should have a delayed opening, we will open at 9:00 a.m. (doors will open at 8:45 a.m. – no early care).   If the County announces an early closing, Half Day students (including Kindergarten) will be dismissed at 12:00 noon. All children in the Full Day Program must be picked up by 3:00 p.m. Cedar Lane will close at 3:00 p.m. to allow staff to get home safely. We will notify parents by telephone or email if we close early. If Fairfax County Schools have a previously scheduled closing and there is a weather emergency, parents will be notified via email and a recording on the school’s voicemail.
