FCPS Warns Weather May Close Schools Early Tuesday

Ice covered trees/FIle photoMore of the dreaded wintry mix is headed towards Reston this afternoon — which may make for a messy commute and early school closings.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire Washington, D.C., area from noon until 10 p.m. Tuesday. Forecasters say expect snow, sleet and freezing rain as temperatures hover right around freezing.

Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent Karen Garza issued this statement late Monday:

At this time, we anticipate an on-time start for school tomorrow, March 3, 2015, as we strive to resume our regular academic calendar.

However, the National Weather Service is forecasting the possibility of freezing rain or sleet for tomorrow and this could result in an early dismissal of classes or the cancellation of after school and/or evening activities in FCPS schools or on school grounds.

Please monitor the FCPS website and Facebook and Twitter accounts, plus local media, and expect to receive a Keep in Touch message should we need to dismiss early or cancel after-school events.

Thank you for working with us as we continue to cope with this difficult winter weather.

Other area schools systems have also told parents to be on the lookout for early closings.
