Arlington Public Schools will be capping the number of traditional “snow days” students get this winter.
Once the school system calls six snow days, APS will revert to remote learning for students who are attending school in-person this year.
“We have updated our winter weather procedures, including a return to traditional snow days and a code system,” Superintendent Francisco Durán said in a School Talk email sent last Wednesday. “The first six inclement weather days will be treated as traditional ‘snow days.’ These six days may occur consecutively as part of a single major event or at different times during isolated weather events.”
Starting with the seventh snow day, APS will call distance-learning days so that learning can continue and to avoid scheduling makeup days.
“APS will announce decisions impacting the following day by 6 p.m. whenever possible,” Durán said. “Morning decisions will be announced by 5 a.m., as needed, based on conditions overnight.”
He encouraged families to update their emergency contacts and have a plan in place for snow days.
APS also reintroduced the five weather codes, which each signify a different level of closures depending on the severity of the weather:
- Code 1: All Schools and Offices Closed
- Code 2: Two Hour Delay
- Code 3: Early Release
- Code 4: After School Activities Canceled
- Code 5: Weekend Activities Canceled
