    Extended Christmas break continues for Loudoun schools

    Loudoun County Public Schools are closed for the third consecutive school day Jan. 7, due to predictions of extremely cold weather.

    All activities, including all after-school activities, are cancelled.

    Administrative offices will be open at the regular time.

    The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for Loudoun County effective this evening through Tuesday evening. Temperatures are expected to drop to 0 to 5 degrees overnight and to rise no higher than 15 degrees Tuesday. Wind chills of minus-10 to minus-15 degrees are possible during this period.

    Winds of 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts to 40 miles per hour are expected.

    A statement from the LCPS Public Information Office states, "As has always been the case for LCPS, student safety is the one criterion for determining this closing. Temperatures such as those predicted for Tuesday would affect students walking to school as well as those waiting at bus stops."

    This will be the fifth day of school cancelled of the 2013-2014 school year. Missing school Jan. 7 will not affect the remaining calendar for the 2013-14 school year. LCPS has employed a “fixed calendar” since 1990.

    The fixed calendar means that days missed for inclement weather will not cause truncated vacations, Saturday classes, lengthened school days or changes in graduation dates.
