Schools to Open Two Hours Late Thursday Due to Snow and Ice
Montgomery County public schools open two hours late tomorrow, Thursday, March 22 due to emergency weather conditions. Bus service will be provided on a two-hour-delayed schedule. Morning prekindergarten, morning half-day Head Start, other morning half-day programs and field trips are canceled. Other activities and programs that begin at 10:50 am or earlier are canceled.
Administrative offices will open on time. Day care programs in school buildings may remain open as scheduled.
MCPS will continue to monitor the roadways and, if school closure is necessary, an announcement will be made by 7:00 am.
Wednesday’s storm closed schools and covered the Germantown area with about five inches of heavy wet snow, which was great for snowball fights and snowmen but heavy for shovels and plows. The storm also made travel on area roads difficult.
