Fairfax County Public Schools students will have another snow day on Wednesday, Jan. 22.

School is canceled for the second straight day, FCPS officials announced about 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday. About five inches of snow fell Tuesday in Reston, and snow was still falling at nightfall.

Adding to the snow cleanup, temperatures are expected to be in the single digits Wednesday morning.

Fairfax County students have now used more than the allotted number of snow days built into the school year. Tuesday’s snow day will be made up on Feb. 17, which was supposed to be the President’s Day holiday. Wednesday’s snow day will be made up on April 7, a previously scheduled workday.
