School closed tomorrow as students and staff both get proper snow day

As it turns out, Wednesday was the last day this week kids would return to Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) as both students and teachers get their snow day.

At 5 p.m. today (Thursday), ACPS announced that school would be fully closed on Friday. All activities in school or on school grounds are canceled, and ACPS officials told ALXnow that there won’t be virtual school tomorrow either.

The closure comes ahead of anticipated snow tonight.

Students had today off as well for a work-day with faculty and staff, but most staff will have tomorrow off.

“All essential personnel, including building engineers, custodians, maintenance shop employees and security staff must still report if safe to do so,” ACPS said on its website.
