Morning prekindergarten, morning half-day Head Start, other morning half-day programs and field trips are canceled. Other activities and programs that begin at 10:30 am or earlier are canceled. Administrative offices will be open on time. Day care programs in school buildings will remain open as scheduled.

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for today through 10:00 pm tonight. “Very cold wind chills expected late this evening through Friday morning. Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the morning commute. Snowfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches expected. Expect wind chills to range from 0 to 10 below zero.”

“Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times this morning from snow. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.
