LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — As a St. Patrick’s Day storm packed a heavier than expected wallop — closing federal offices and most public schools in the area Monday — some schools have already decided to open later on Tuesday.
Public schools in Howard, Calvert, St. Mary’s, and Baltimore counties are on a two-hour delay.
Schools in Montgomery and Prince George’s County will open on time.
Public schools in Fairfax, Prince William, Loudoun, Culpeper, Fauquier, Stafford, and Spotsylvania counties are on a two-hour delay. Mannasas City and Manassas Park schools will also open two hours late.
Schools in Alexandria and Arlington County will open on time.
D.C. Public Schools are also scheduled to begin classes on time.
With spring just days away, snowy road conditions are being blamed for hundreds of accidents across the region Monday, including an overturned passenger bus that closed southbound Interstate 95 in Stafford County.
Four of the 58 passengers on-board the bus were seriously injured.
