Three Hour Delays
Because of the number of snow days ACPS has experienced over the last few years, especially in the Mountain Ridge school district, ACPS has adopted a 3-hour delay schedule which may be used this year as needed. ACPS has scheduled a 3-hour delay on February 27, 2015 which will be for professional development for secondary teachers.
Students on an abbreviated schedule need to be aware that all seven periods will be scheduled on any delay schedule and the schedule will not rotate this year. On a 3-hour delay schedule, all periods except 5th period will be 15 minutes long. Attendance is required.
