Public schools to be closed Wednesday due to snowstorm; Snow Emergency to begin at 8 a.m.

March 6, 2018

Philadelphia is preparing for another snowstorm, and the School District has announced that all public schools will be closed Wednesday, March 7. All after-school activities including all athletic programs and professional development sessions scheduled for Wednesday are canceled as well. All District early childhood centers will also be closed.

A Snow Emergency will be declared for the City of Philadelphia beginning 8 a.m. on Wednesday, which means that all parked cars must be moved off Snow Emergency routes for plowing. When moving your car, park as far from the corner of the street as possible; vehicles parked too close to the corner get in the way of snow plows trying to turn corners.

Snow Emergency information and a map of Snow Emergency routes can be found here. Cars left on Snow Emergency routes will be moved to other parking spots. If your car is moved, call 215-686-SNOW to find it. Please do not call 911.

All trash and recycling collections will be suspended for Wednesday, and will be one day behind for the rest of the week.
