In general, CHAW follows the schedule of DC Public Schools. However, on occasion we will open for evening classes or open on time even if the school system is operating under a modified schedule. Please call the office at (202) 547-6839 to confirm CHAW’s schedule during severe weather. If inclement weather occurs later in the afternoon, evening, or on a Saturday, CHAW reserves the right to close and cancel all scheduled activities. Notification will be posted on the CHAW website and on the main phone number. Adult and early childhood classes cancelled due to inclement weather will be rescheduled if calendar and space permit. Every effort will be made to reschedule them.
