Icy roads, dangerous parking lots mean schools closed Thursday, Jan. 13

Black ice, icy roads in neighborhoods and rural areas, and unsafe parking lots and sidewalks mean schools will be closed Thursday, Jan. 13.

“We spent much of Wednesday traveling the county to check road conditions,” superintendent Gene Moore said. “There’s still a dangerous amount of ice on roads, especially in neighborhoods and rural areas. We want to return to school as soon as possible, but our first concern is the safety of our students, our parents and our staff. After considering all the factors and consulting with law enforcement, we decided closing was safest thing to do.”
