    Why are the schools closed for 1/7/2014. What reason besides the low temperature, is keeping schools from remaining open? Is it because some kids have to walk to school and it is unsafe for them, or is there another reason?

      FCPS stop sending our children to recess, they are being exposed in cold temperatures, they are at risk of hypothermia. We don’t want our kids to wait for their buses with current advisory of freezing rain..We want FCPS schools to be closed or delay.
