    What about if applied for leave today and tomorrow how does that work

    • Anonymous says :

      If you already have leave approved (sick or annual), emergency leave does not apply. You’re still using your own leave.

    • Anonymous says :

      I think you have already scheduled leave you don’t get the admin leave. Your dept HR should be able to explain it. It’s the same if today, Thursday was your approved telework day, you had to telework unless you lost power.

    If I have a regular schedule of 8 – 4:30 and lunch from noon to 1 pm, would it be the same if I came in at 1 pm and worked until 4:30? Thanks

    Is it worth the expense of opening all buildings & running utilities for jus 4 hours? Seems more cost effective to close alltogether..

    The snow removal trucks did improper job about removing snow in our neighborhood area, they just drove over night and showeled snow at bustops, pathways, corners of every house. The FCPS school buses cannot even drive thru our neighborhood to pick-up school kids. Do you want the kids to stand over the pile of snow for buses and get hypothermias? It is Fairfax County’s duty to prevent safety and accidents happening. Close schools on February-Monday 17th. Prevention is better than cure. Do not put our children’s life under risk.
