Here are how some school districts are responding

Multiple school systems in Northern Virginia either canceled classes and turned Monday into a professional day for teachers and staff, or plan to start late.

On Sunday, on-and-off rain fell on the D.C. area. As temperatures fell below freezing overnight, there was a risk of a refreeze on roads.

Here are how some school districts are responding:

  • Alexandria City Public Schools considered a two-hour delay, but announced Monday morning that their schools would open on time. "ACPS has determined that the road conditions in our area are safe to transport students, and is notifying staff and families that our school division will operate today under normal hours and normal transportation procedures," the school district said.
  • Culpeper County Public Schools will open on a two-hour delay due to the possibility of hazardous road conditions.
  • Fredericksburg City Public Schools canceled classes for students and made Monday a teacher work day on a two-hour delay.
  • Spotsylvania County Public Schools canceled classes for students and made Monday a teacher work day starting at 10 a.m.
  • Stafford County Public Schools canceled classes for students and made Monday a professional work day for staff starting at 10 a.m. due to ongoing dangerous road conditions and lingering effects of last week's winter storm.
