Our Closure & Late Opening Policy

If Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) are closed, Acorn Hill will be closed. If, however, MCPS has extended closures beyond one day, Acorn Hill will make an independent decision. If MCPS has a delayed opening, Acorn Hill will open late by one hour, at 10 am and 10:30 am.

Acorn Hill follows MCPS emergency closings in two situations only: inclement weather closures and inclement weather late openings (both primarily due to snow). In all other cases we make an independent decision and place information on our website homepage and send out an email and text.

Some examples of emergency closures are: inclement weather (hazardous snow/ice conditions, hurricane, tornado, severe thunderstorm, etc.), electrical power failures, water failures. See below for specific closure indications.

If Montgomery County Public Schools are:

  • opening late for inclement weather and canceling morning programs,
    Acorn Hill will open at 10 am and 10:30 am.
  • closed for inclement weather (snow days—snow and ice conditions),
    Acorn Hill will also be closed.
  • closed for all other inclement weather related conditions (hurricane, tornado, severe thunderstorms, etc.),
    Acorn Hill will also be closed.
  • closed for electrical power and water failures,
    Acorn Hill will make an independent decision. We will post on our website and send an email/text after 7:30 am.
  • closed early for any other reason,
    Acorn Hill will make an independent decision. We will post on our website and send an email/text after 7:30 am.
