HyFlex Inclement Weather Policy

The Siena School usually follows Montgomery County Public Schools’ weather-related school closures and delays; however, until MCPS returns to in-building instruction, we wanted to share what you can expect regarding decisions. We will make the decision the evening before or by 6:15 am.

You will be notified through Siena’s Parent Alert System, via email and text message.



  • Unless there is severe weather that affects internet access, etc., virtual learning will continue if in-building instruction is closed for the entire day.
  • If a closure or delay impacts on-site COVID Testing, we will work with Potomac Pediatrics to reschedule and will update you via ParentSquare.
  • We will only make announcements for Mondays/Tuesdays/Thursdays/Fridays. All students engage in virtual learning on Wednesdays; therefore, instruction will not be affected and students should follow their usual schedules.


Mondays/Tuesdays (elementary and middle school) and Thursdays/Fridays (high school)

  • If Siena calls a 2-hour delay, students should arrive between 10:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Periods 1 & 2 will be canceled. Students should go directly to their 3rd period class.
  • If in-building instruction is closed, students will continue to follow their HyFlex schedule and log in to all their classes via Zoom from home.
