FCPS Announces Early Closing On Wednesday, November 24
News, Schools

From Fairfax County Public Schools:

All Fairfax County public schools will close two hours early on Wednesday, November 24, in an effort to help school buses avoid the increased traffic related to the Thanksgiving holidays. This policy has been in effect for the past few years. Superintendent Jack D. Dale has issued the following guidelines regarding the early closing:

Morning and afternoon kindergarten midday runs will be on a Monday early closing schedule. The afternoon kindergarten students will be released with grades 1-6 and will go home at their usual times. 

Schedules for Head Start, preschool, alternative learning centers (ALC), and intervention support programs (ISP) will be modified individually and coordinated between transportation and program staff members.

All other classes will be dismissed two hours earlier than the regular Tuesday through Friday closing schedule.

Limited preapproved school activities are allowed, but regular late buses are canceled.

The Office of Transportation Services will contact each school to schedule exact pickup times for students.

Afternoon career and technical education and academy courses will be canceled for all students who are transported to high school academies, specialized programs, or nonschool-based locations.

Recreation programs will proceed as scheduled.

School Age Child Care (SACC) programs will be available for students until 6:15 p.m. or until the last child is picked up.
