Arlington Public Schools to Remain Closed Thursday

Arlington Public Schools logo(Updated at 5:55 p.m.) Arlington Public Schools will be closed Thursday due to an anticipated icy morning commute and remaining snow and hazardous driving on neighborhood streets.

The school system made the announcement around 5:30 p.m.

Students are now entering their second week off; schools have been closed since last Thursday. Students have a scheduled off day on Monday due to a teacher grade preparation day.

Arlington County announced tonight that it has completed initial plow passes on all county roads, making at least one drivable lane in residential areas.

From APS:

All APS schools will be closed tomorrow and offices will be open on time. Essential personnel should report to work at their scheduled time.

We apologize that today’s notice is later than earlier this week, but we wanted to take more time to assess the situation across the County.  Like you, we want to open schools as soon as possible to resume instruction.  We still recognize, however, that there are still challenges with snow throughout the community in many neighborhoods.  As a result, we have decided to close again tomorrow and our offices will be open on time.  Please be assured that APS will open schools as soon as conditions improve.  Thank you for your patience and understanding this week.
