Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) announced at 6:15 p.m. on Monday that schools and offices would be closed on Tuesday, with students getting a ‘traditional snow day’ rather than switching to virtual learning.

After previously considering switching to virtual classes on any school days that might be closed due to snow, the ACPS website noted that the school division would also consider having some snow days off for students and teachers.

According to a release from ACPS:

Due to the inclement weather forecast, all Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) schools and offices will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2024. All in-person activities are canceled. This is a traditional snow day and no virtual learning will take place for students.

For more information on our revised instructional plans, please visit the ACPS winter weather decisions webpage.

Please note that due to the school closure, all afternoon and evening activities on ACPS school grounds are also canceled. This includes programming that is provided by community organizations or the City of Alexandria in ACPS facilities or on school grounds, as well as any ACPS athletic, band or other extracurricular activities or community events. Families may want to check with their community service provider to get an update on their changes in operations due to the expected inclement weather. Schools will send information to families regarding any make-up days or new event dates.

All essential personnel, including building engineers, custodians, maintenance shop employees and security staff must still report if safe to do so. Please contact your direct supervisor for reporting instructions.
