The district also said all school buildings will be closed Tuesday, including the district headquarters and family technology support centers, to allow for safe clearing of snow from all roadways and walkways.
"This provides our staff, students and families with the opportunity to find a little time in the afternoon to enjoy some fun, outside activities. Teachers will assign due dates for assignments accordingly. Students are expected to log in to their classes in the morning," the school district said.
Philadelphia parish, regional elementary schools, and secondary schools will also hold virtual classes for Tuesday.
