School Forms & Info

Congregation Beth Emeth Religious School provides vibrant and engaging Jewish learning for students in grades K-10th. When we open school in fall 2020, we will learn together in new ways, which will rely on digital teacher-led classes, as well as social community class gatherings (hopefully in person). More information about our Religious School design will be forthcoming and please feel free to reach out to Ellie ( if you have questions throughout the summer.

This page contains important resources for Religious School and Chai School families, including registration forms, policy guides, calendar, links and school closing policy.

School Closing Policy for Inclement Weather or other Events

  • The Religious School Director, in consultation with the Executive Director, will decide whether to close school.
  • On weekdays, the Religious School generally, but not always, follows Fairfax County Public Schools' decision to cancel school or after-school activities. Notice of school cancellation will be sent via email as soon as possible and will be recorded on the synagogue's voicemail system.
  • On weekends, the Religious School does not follow the Fairfax County Public Schools’ decision. If Religious School and student programs are cancelled during the weekend, the announcement will be emailed to parents and will be available on the synagogue’s voicemail system.
  • If an emergency causes Religious School to be closed, parents will be contacted by email and/or telephone as soon as possible. A message also will be posted on the synagogue’s voicemail system.
