Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) announced schools will open two hours late Friday, Jan. 7.  The county is expecting a winter storm to produce two to four inches of snow leaving sidewalks and roads icy.

According to the MCPS website, bus service will be provided on a two-hour-delayed schedule. Morning prekindergarten, morning half-day Head Start, and other morning half-day programs are canceled. All field trips are canceled.

Other activities and programs that begin at 10:30 a.m. or earlier are canceled. School and administrative offices will open on time. Childcare programs in schools will remain open as scheduled.

Any changes to this plan will be announced by 5 a.m. Friday.
