For the third day in a row, in-person school is canceled and Alexandria students will be expected to attend virtual classes.
Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) said ongoing icy conditions are to blame for the cancellation of in-person classes.
Schools were virtual on Monday during the winter storm and again today, though these plans were frustrated in part by widespread internet outages — and some bemoaned the end of the snow day.
Around 95% of the city’s arterial roads are passable, according to the city’s Department of Transportation and Environmental Services, and nearly 65% of the secondary streets are passable. As of Tuesday afternoon, plow trucks were starting to work through residential streets.
All ACPS schools and offices will be closed for in-person learning and activities on Wed., Jan. 5, 2022, due to continued winter weather conditions throughout the Washington Metropolitan area. All schools will implement virtual learning. Please see https://t.co/mLr8qU21cL. pic.twitter.com/NiKHQ3PzTR

ROADS UPDATE: City crews continue to make steady progress on primary, secondary and intermediate streets. Crews have also begun making residential streets passable. You can help us get back to normal by shoveling sidewalks and making sure storm inlets are clear!
