Operating Status Policy
Generally, US Kids follows the Federal government’s operating status for the Washington, D.C. metro area, as determined by the Office of Personnel Management. See http://www.opm.gov/status .
In general, on any day the Federal government is open, the Center will be open for its regular hours, which are Monday – Friday, 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. If the Federal government is open but operating under a modified schedule, the Center’s operating hours will be as set out below.
You can always check the Center’s operating status by calling the Center at (202) 233-4623. If the Center will not be open at its regular time, there will be an updated message by 6:00 am that day, or as early as possible based on when OPM issues an announcement. In the event of an early closure announcement, the Center will notify parents of the early closing time by email.
