Much of the DMV area is under Areal Flood Warnings, with a Flash Flood Watch in effect until 11 a.m. Thursday morning.

WASHINGTON — Stafford County Public Schools and Spotsylvania County Public Schools in Virginia will not have in-person instruction on Thursday due to safety concerns after heavy rain overnight caused flooding in the DMV region, according to the school systems.

Spotsylvania County Public School officials said their instruction for Thursday will be “asynchronous instruction” only. They said no student will be penalized if they do not have internet service. There will be no school bus services. All students should work from home, but their 12-month employees are still required to show up to work on a two-hour delay, school officials said.

On the other hand, Stafford County Public School officials said the school system will go through virtual instruction Thursday due to high water and flooded areas.
