Inclement Weather

It is often difficult to predict whether precipitation will fall as rain, sleet, snow, or ice in the Washington area. Conditions sometimes appear safe in the morning, then worsen during the work-day, requiring the Center to close early. If weather turns severe during the day, please make every effort to pick up your child early from the Center. Listen to the radio to keep informed about the weather, and the Federal Government's determination about closing, on days when snow is in the forecast. The decision to close the Center is ultimately at the Director's discretion.

TPCDC is closed when the Federal Government is closed. When the Federal Government announces a one hour delay, TPCDC will open at 8:00 am. When the Federal Government delay is 2 hours, TPCDC will open at 9:00 am.

Even if the Federal Government is open, the Director has discretion to delay the Center's opening if there is significant ice in Takoma Park (on streets and side-walks). If the streets are icy, be sure to double check TPCDC's operating status by listening to WJLA 7 or 8, or looking on In addition, TPCDC also notifies parents by email about late openings and early closings so be sure to sign up for the Parents Mailing List below. Decisions about late openings will be made by 6 a.m. by Terry in consultation with teachers and the Board chairs.
