Why Stafford schools had a two-hour delay today

Stafford County’s school system was the only one in the immediate Fredericksburg area to have a late opening today. Neighboring Fauquier and Prince William counties, however, were closed.

Stafford schools spokeswoman Valerie Cottongim said the western part of the county had icy roads, which was the reason for the two-hour delay.

Other areas in the county only had rain.

Stafford public schools have missed almost five full days this school year because of  inclement weather. The division hasn’t yet cancelled school for tomorrow.
