Arlington Public School will open on a two hour delay today due to snow and slick roads.
A coating of snow fell overnight and much of it stuck to untreated roads. A number of accidents have been reported while some buses, like Metro’s 16G line, are driving modified routes.
“Essential personnel and food service workers should report to work at their scheduled time,” APS said in an email. “All other employees should report to work two hours past their usual start time.”
Arlington County offices will open at their usual time, the county said.
6:30 AM Update for Wed, Jan. 17: APS has now reconfirmed that all schools and offices will open two hours late today.

While less than an inch of snow is expected this morning across the DC/Balt metro, road temperatures have now fallen below freezing, so anything untreated may get icy! Motorists and pedestrians should exercise caution! #dcwx #mdwx #vawx
