From OPM:

Federal agencies in the Washington, DC area are OPEN under 2 hours DELAYED ARRIVAL and employees have the OPTION FOR UNSCHEDULED LEAVE OR UNSCHEDULED TELEWORK. Employees should plan to arrive for work no more than 2 hours later than they would be expected to arrive.”

From the Mayor’s office:

“Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser convened her snow team for an update on the City’s anticipated inclement weather. After discussions with relevant agency directors, it has been concluded that the District of Columbia government will open on time, and operate under normal business hours.

District of Columbia Public Schools, however, will open two hours late.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our residents,” said Mayor Bowser. “Our snow team was prepared for the anticipated inclement weather, and determined that opening the District government on time to serve our residents was the right choice. In the best interest of our children, we have chosen a two-hour delay for DC Public Schools to ensure that our youth are completely safe during their commute to school this morning.”

All students, teachers, and non-essential school-based employees should report two hours after their regular start time. Central and administrative office employees should report based on the decision announced for other District government employees. However, all essential personnel should report at their regular start time.”
