Montgomery County Public Schools will be closed Thursday due to snow.

MCPS originally announced a two-hour delay, with the caveat that another decision could be coming by 7 a.m. Administrative offices will open two hours late and day care programs in school buildings may open at 9 a.m.

The Montgomery County government will open as usual and trash and recycling pick-ups will proceed as normal. Regular Wednesday pick-ups are being made today due to last Saturday’s snow storm.

Montgomery County Recreation has cancelled all scheduled programs and activities. Community Centers and aquatic facilities will be open for drop-in use.

Major roads were slick but mostly clear of snow accumulation a little before 7 a.m.:

State Highway officials on Wednesday warned morning commuters to consider delaying their commutes. Federal government employees are on a two-hour delayed arrival schedule, according to OPM.
