Help needed: Shovelers for Fairfax schools

By Erica Johnston

Fairfax County Public Schools are asking for volunteers Monday to help dig out sidewalks, bus stops and fire hydrants near all county schools as officials work to re-open for the first time since record-setting snowstorms blanketed the region.

Don't have much planned for Presidents Day? Volunteers are asked to show up at county schools with shovels in hand between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday.

The county’s schools are closed Monday for the holiday, although they were originally planned to be open as a makeup day before officials decided they needed an extra day to clear snow-covered roads. School administrative staff will be working Monday, and some will be tasked with directing the volunteer snow removal efforts.

Fairfax has already canceled a planned one-day April holiday and will extend the school year into June because of this year’s missed snow days.
