Winter Storm Warning: School closings, other delays in the Tennessee Valley

Winter Storm Warning: School closings, other delays in the Tennessee Valley

According to the National Weather Service, wind chills could reach negative 55 in northern IL, which could lead to hypothermia, frostbite and death in extreme cases.

The decision to delay or close schools in Indianapolis is generally made by 5 a.m.so that the schools can get word out to families in the district by 6 a.m.

"The criteria we look at first and foremost in severe weather is whether the conditions allow for safe travel", said Skretta.

"If we can get our buses up and running - they are warm, our facilities are warm", said Kenton County School District spokeswoman Jessica Dykes.

Superintendent Laurrie said he plans to confer with experts, school administrators and review CDC recommendations in making a decision. Central locations will remain open & staff should report.

The Edwardsville Community Unit 7 District tells us an administrative team begins reviewing all potentially unsafe weather 24 hours in advance.

"We are trying to have school". Gloves and boots with insulation are a must, a hat should be worn so that ears are covered, a heavy coat with several layers under it is best, and a scarf to cover one's neck and face is important. Parent Centers can be reached by phone at the numbers listed on our website at buffaloschools.org. "Our walkers sometimes don't always dress for the weather". The district does have cold weather guidelines if school is still held in cold weather. It has the latest temperatures, snow totals, forecasts and school closings 24/7.

Lincoln County Schools in Tennessee will be closed Tuesday.
