Emergency Closing Policy
Use the following information if you think school may have an alternate schedule because of snow or other emergency situations. For information on closings, check your email for announcements from Temple Beth Ami or check the Temple website
If Montgomery County Government is closed, then Gan Ami is closed.
If Montgomery County Public Schools are open for in-person classes, then Gan Ami will adhere to MCPS’ decision to close for the first two days of a weather incident and will make an independent decision based on the conditions around our facility on the third day and after.
If MCPS is not holding in-person classes and Montgomery County Government is open, then Gan Ami will necessarily make independent decisions about opening in inclement weather based on the conditions of our facility.
We ask that you always use your judgment when weather is inclement. If you feel that driving is hazardous, please stay home, even if school is open.
Delayed Openings: Gan Ami will always open on time, unless school is closed for the entire day. There will not be any delayed openings.
Early Dismissal: Gan Ami will end at 12:00 for Bets and 1:00 for Gimels and Dalets on days with challenging weather conditions. There will not be any early dismissals for inclement weather.
Gan Ami may close early for other emergency situations, if directed to do so by local health, law enforcement or government officials.
