Poll: Should Fairfax County Public Schools Be Closed Today?

With snow and icy rain last night and this morning, several counties in the D.C. area have closed or delayed start times today (Monday) for their public schools.

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) announced shortly before 5 a.m. on Twitter their schools would be open and start on time today. By 9 a.m. more than 4,000 tweets were using #closefcps and the hashtag was trending in the U.S. on Twitter.

Tysons Reporter spotted many memes, frustration about FCPS not closing and elation over the hashtag’s popularity among the #closefcps tweets.
