Early Spring Snow Storm Closes Schools Wednesday

March 21, 2018

 

Montgomery County Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, March 21, due to emergency weather conditions. All school-sponsored and community-use activities in school buildings are canceled. All administrative offices are open. Day care programs in school buildings may remain open as scheduled. MCPS will reevaluate this decision by 5:00 a.m. to determine if closure of offices is necessary.

   Schools will be closed Wednesday, due to the snow which will fall overnight and the additional snow which is expected to accumulate all day on Wednesday.

   Montgomery College will also be closed tomorrow due to hazardous weather conditions.

   The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Germantown and the entire DC area until 8:00 pm Wednesday night. “Heavy snow expected,” said the NWS. “Mixed precipitation expected for the remainder of today, with heavy snow expected tonight and Wednesday. Storm total accumulations of 6 to 12 inches expected. A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.”

   The Winter Storm Warning is an upgrade from the Winter Strom Watch issued by the NWS earlier this week.

    MCPS Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Zuckerman, send an email to school employs explaining that if schools are to be closed tomorrow the last day of school for MCPS would Friday, June 15, 2018. “If schools need to be closed for two days as a result of the weather, then we will evaluate all available options. Our snow make-up day schedule calls for opening school next week over spring break; however, given the late timing of this snowstorm and the closeness to the start of spring break, we may need to re-evaluate the snow make-up day schedule and consider alternative possibilities. My hope is that we will not be in this position and I remain optimistic that if we have to close it will only be for one day.”
