How many school snow days are left?

It looks like another #FOX5SnowDay is on the way for Thursday, so we wanted to find out how many snow days are left for students in the District, Maryland and Virginia.

We called the local jurisdictions, and as of Wednesday afternoon, here's what we've heard back: 


Montgomery County Public Schools: Used 5 snow days. They have started to add days to the end of the school year in June.

Charles County Public Schools: Used 5 snow days. Their limit is usually 4.  They have already taken away one day of spring break  (Monday, March 30th) and if they have any more snow days then they could take away more days from spring break.

Prince George's County Public Schools: Used 5 snow days. Their limit is usually 4. They have already added one day to the end of the school year.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools: Used 4 snow days. 5 are built into their school year. If it goes past 5, they will start taking away days from spring break.


Loudoun County Public Schools: 10 snow days used so far. They have no limit on how many snow days they can use.  There will be no rescheduling.

Arlington Public Schools: 3 closures so far. Limits for snow days are different for each level. (See make-up plan released Wednesday afternoon)

Fairfax County Public Schools:  They have used 8 snow days and 5 two-hour delays.  They have about 5 days left before they have to start making up days.

Prince William County Public Schools: Used 7 days and opened late 9 times. Remaining days that can be used for closures: 3.65 days.

Alexandria City Public Schools: Have used 2 of their 3 snow days.  Their last day of school is June 9th. If needed, they will start adding days to the end of the school year.


D.C. Public Schools:  They have had 1 closing and have 3 built into the calendar.

"In the event that we experience more than three snow days, we ask the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) for a waiver of the required 180 instructional days. Last year, we requested and were granted that waiver. If OSSE denies our waiver request, we can extend the school year beyond June 22 until we meet the 180 instructional days requirement. I hope this helps." -Frederick Lewis of DC Public Schools

We know this isn't a comprehensive list. We'll update this article as soon as the remaining school districts get back to us about their snow day situation.
