Hours after the city officially declared a snow emergency in Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Streets Department announced that those of us with Monday trash pickup would have to hold our trash for a whole week (yay!), the School District of Philadelphia finally got around to announcing that Philadelphia public schools would be closed on Monday.
Due to the severe weather forecast, all School District of Philadelphia schools will be closed on Monday, March 3 #phled

Pretty much every other school in the region is closed, too. Enjoy!
