Anne Arundel County Public Schools made the call just after 8 p.m. Tuesday night, announcing that Wednesday would be the second snow day of the week.
School will be closed Wednesday for all students, with a Code Blue in effect for employees, according to the Anne Arundel County Public Sschools website. Unit III employees should report for work.
Wednesday's board of education meeting has also been cancelled.
As a reminder, here's how the school system generally makes the call on inclement weather closings and delays, and how it notifies parents:
- Between 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.:, school system transportation crews are out assessing road conditions throughout the county, treating roads and school lots and consulting with state and county agencies on conditions.
- By 4:45 a.m., the superintendent or designee uses information gathered to make a determination about delaying, closing or opening schools on time.
- At around 4:50 a.m., media outlets are notified and email/text message notifications to parents and staff are sent.
- About 30 minutes later, automated calls are made to an approved list.
