 Decisions, Decisions
When forecasters call for bad weather, the FCPS team goes into action to collect information and make a decision about whether to delay or close schools. This video explains and answers some common questions. Play (3:15)

When Fairfax County Public Schools have a schedule change (closing or delay) due to inclement weather or other emergencies, the information is communicated as soon as the decision is made in these ways: 

  • Posted here, Facebook and Twitter.
  • Posted on TV Channel 21 (Cox Communications, Reston Comcast, and Verizon cable customers only).
  • Sent via e-mail to parents, employees, and KIT Plus subscribers of Delayed Openings and School Closings through the Keep in Touch e-mail notification system.
  • Called in to area radio and television stations.
  • Sent via text message to Keep in Touch Plus subscribers who have opted to receive Delayed Openings and School Closings.
