That decision was posted at 4:25 a.m.

MCPS was one of the last areas schools to make the decision to close today.

When asked by MyMCMedia why the school system made the decision this morning despite a lack of snowfall so far, MCPS Spokesman Dana Tofig said, “The forecast is more certain that we will receive a significant amount of snow.”

    The forecast never changed since 10pm. It is ridiculous that MCPS waited until 4:25 to close when every other local school system announced its closure hours earlier based on the same information.
