The National Weather Service is expecting 5 to 10 inches of snow in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Sunday night and Monday. So, what does that mean for schools?

Public schools in Anne Arundel County are closed.

Should schools be closed on Monday? Tell us in the comments section below!

A decision is usually made by 5 a.m. if school schedules will be changed. The first alert is posted on the district’s website and at AACPS on Facebook.

See the forecast for the Annapolis area from the National Weather Service.

Here's part of the timeline for deciding whether to delay or cancel classes, from the district website:

By 4:45 a.m.: Information about road and school lot conditions, along with an assessment of the forecast, is used to form a recommendation that is made to the superintendent. This is imperative so that, when conditions warrant, we can prevent buses from leaving bus lots. 

4:50 a.m.: Media outlet notifications begin; website/Facebook/Twitter postings of any delay or closure take place; and email/text message notifications to parents and staff are done. 

5:30 a.m.: Automated telephone message to parents and employees begins.
