School wasn’t cancelled Friday. The students are out for a teacher workday tomorrow instead of Monday. Teachers can report to their site or work from home. It is a workday for staff.
While I’m not sure I understand why they felt the need to call off Friday so far in advance, I understand why they scratched tomorrow, even with no additional snow. I was out this evening in Eastern Loudoun and the roads are still incredibly slick. It’s just too cold for the salt and plows to clear ice effectively. I can only imagine what it’s like in the west.
