Fauquier schools closed Friday due to frigid weather
Fauquier County Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 5. After-school activities are also cancelled. Offices will open on a two-hour delay.
“The purpose for the closing is related to both student safety concerns due to frigidly cold temperatures and mechanical issues impacting both transportation and the heating of schools,” according to an announcement on the school system’s website.
Temperatures at 7 a.m. Friday will drop to nine degrees with a sub-zero wind chill.
A decision on Saturday school activities will be issued by noon on Friday.
