ANNAPOLIS, MD — As Annapolis crews haul snow by truck out of residential streets, schools and county offices will be closed again on Tuesday, Jan. 26, across Anne Arundel County.
Residents are being asked to shovel sidewalks and the Annapolis mayor said crews will continue to work around the clock this week to clear all roads. (See more below on the city’s snow-plowing progress and trash pickup).
All Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ school and administrative offices will be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 26, because of the snow, moving the teacher workday – and another day out of class for students – to Wednesday.
A Code Red is in effect for employees. Unit III personnel will receive separate instructions with details on reporting to their work locations Tuesday.
Tuesday’s closing moves the teacher work day to Wednesday, Jan. 27, and means that schools will be closed for students on Wednesday, too. At this time, the third marking period will begin for students on Thursday, Jan. 28, and will be a B Day for high school and middle school students.
The school system has now used one of the five days built into the calendar for inclement weather closings.
County Offices Closed Tuesday
In addition, all Anne Arundel County government offices and departments will be closed for nonessential personnel on Tuesday, Jan. 26.
“We continue to work clearing our roads in our neighborhoods, ” County Executive Steve Schuh said Monday. “While we are making progress, keeping county government closed will allow our crews the extra time needed to finish the job.”
Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides said city crews will continue to work 24 hours a day, through at least Thursday, Jan. 28 in an effort to get all roads cleared.
