Schools, Gov’t Offices to Close for Washington’s Birthday

George WashingtonCounty and federal offices and Arlington Public Schools will be closed on Monday, Feb. 17, in observance of George Washington’s birthday.

Schools will close despite being shut down yesterday and today from the 10 inches of snow that fell from Wednesday night into Thursday. APS had already released a make-up schedule for elementary schools with early release after the snow day on Jan. 3 meant the schools would need additional instructional hours. No word yet on if or how that schedule will change.

County courts will close as well as the offices. ART bus and Metro services will run on holiday schedules and parking meters will not be enforced. Trash and recycling pickup will maintain its normal schedule.

ARLnow.com will not publish on the holiday, with the exception of possible breaking news.
