Inclement winter weather is expected in the Sunday, January 16, 2022 through Monday, January 17, 2022 timeframe.
Safety is always our first priority for our cadets, and we have implemented the below policy and procedures to deal with the hazardous weather conditions that the winter season brings.
By order of the Academic Dean, the below 9AM Class Day schedule will be implemented for Monday, January 17, 2022.
In the event of inclement weather, all day students are expected to attend class and should make arrangements with their respective TAC Officer and teacher as described below if hazardous traveling conditions exist or are expected.
To be clear, day students at Fork Union Military Academy are NOT subject to the Fluvanna County school system's "snow day" delays or cancellations. They must be in class as expected.
If a day student decides to stay on campus, he must stay in the barracks. Each day student cadet has been assigned a room by their TAC Officer. Bed sheets and a pillowcase will be supplied. During their stay, all meals will be provided in the dining hall.
Day students staying on campus are expected to adhere to all rules and regulations in the barracks (i.e., CQ or study hall, no cell phones, lights out, etc.).
It is recommended that day student cadets who drive to campus keep a packed bag in their vehicle in the event of winter weather. Day students should have the following recommended supplies for an overnight stay in the barracks:
Black Fleece w/ rain overcoat
Blanket and pillow
PT uniform - t-shirt and shorts
Sweatshirt and sweatpants
Tennis shoes and socks
Underwear and white t-shirt
Towel and washcloth
Soap or body wash
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Brush or comb
