Ice, ice baby: Winter weather closes Albemarle and Charlottesville schools


You must have weather, whether you like it or not. School, however, doesn’t necessarily follow the same rules. In preparation for anywhere from 5" to 10" of snow, Albemarle County Public Schools have dismissed all students for the day, and cancelled all extracurricular activities. Charlottesville High School has also dismissed students, but city elementary and middle schools remain on a normal operating schedule. For those of you with students in area private schools, check the appropriate website; a cursory glance shows that St. Anne’s-Belfield and Covenant have dismissed students and cancelled extracurriculars. PVCC and UVA have also cancelled classes.

Additionally, a joint city-county-UVA workshop scheduled for this evening at the Albemarle County Office Building, "Carbon, Our Energy Future, and You," will be rescheduled at a later date. If you know of any additional weather-related closings, post them below. And play nice.
