FCPS Closed Thursday for Third Straight Snow Day

fcps logoFairfax County Public Schools will be closed again on Thursday as county officials continue to clean up after Tuesday’s snowstorm.

Thursday will be the third straight snow day and the sixth snow day overall.

While main roads are generally in good shape, many side roads in the county remain icy in areas.

FCPS builds three snow days into the school year. Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s snow days will be made up Feb. 17 and April 7, which were previously scheduled student holidays.

The good news: tomorrow’s snow day will not have to be made up, FCPS says.

However, if FCPS closes for additional days later this school year, extra time may be added on to the end of the school year.

    This is too much. FCPS is not considering the impact that their decision has on working families here. I understood the issues with the snow day, even about today, where it was very cold, but there just is no legitimate reason for them to close the schools for Thursday.

    And yes, FCPS will, again, at the end of the school year – suspend the extra days to be made up…Been there, done that for 18 years
