8:03 am
until 11:30 this morning. so that is a little late for some parents we know but based on the conditions that we've seen throughout fairfax county and specifically reston this morning it's those side streets, the driveways, the sidewalks that really really need that extra time, that extra attention this morning. like all school systems fairfax county generally takes into account the worst of the conditions throughout the co county. so while your particular neighborhood your particular street might seem just fine, there are probably most likely other parts of the county where it is not fine, it is not safe that's why they take that extra precaution. also saying it's not just the time to let things warm up a little bit. it's just now getting to the freezing level. 32 degrees right here in reston now won't get above freezing until 10:00 this morning. one other thing that they want, they want the daylight hours. so that not only for the students but also
8:04 am
workers. it's just a little easier to navigate and to see what's ice and what isn't once the sun is up. so looks like that was a good call here in fairfax county for them to delay things just a little bit this morning. and i think those parents will be glad to finally get their kids off into the classroom. live in reston, melanie alnwick fox5 local news. >> in the meantime there are more troubles on the roads in northern virginia a water main break that sent water bursting through the pave many early this morning along annandale road in fairfax county. road crews had to shut down the road in both directions to clean up that mess. water spilling it on to the streets caused pretty slick conditions out there. be careful driving this morning. 8:04. and new this morning police need help finding this 11-year-old boy. his name is prince williams, jr., he was last seen on monday afternoon on houston street in suitland much the boy is 5-foot four, 170 pounds, again, here's his picture. he was wearing a black coat, black pants and black and blue nikes. if you
