Fake Facebook page causes snow closure confusion Monday night

A fake Facebook page made to look like the Nelson County Schools district page posted a false closure announcement early Monday night before officials had actually made the decision.

Before 10 p.m., some school families were sharing the post about the closure on their own accounts, only to be told it was a fake. The profile mimicked the real page’s profile picture and wording for the closure, claiming school was closed Jan. 16 and it would not be a non-traditional instruction day. The post was later edited to say school was closed on “Jan. 32.”
