Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County Schools will not be in session for Thursday, January 6, 2022, as a result of a winter weather forecast for Thursday morning, according to a statement from Superintendent of Schools, Brian Alexander.
"After consultation with national, regional, and local weather services, we have made the decision to announce the closure of Edmonson County Schools for January 6, 2022, this afternoon," Alexander said. "With the threat of incoming winter weather imminent, we want to give parents time this afternoon and tonight to make childcare arrangements now rather than later. This will be our first Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) Day for this school year."
Supt. Alexander also said that any announcement concerning school closure on Friday, January 7th, will be made sometime tomorrow.
"As always, the health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority as a school district," he added. "Everyone please stay safe during this time of winter weather."
The latest forecast from Edmonson Voice meteorologist Landon Hampton from WxOrNotBG is a winter storm warning for Edmonson and other counties, which is predicting 3 to 5 inches of snow. The warning is in effect Thursday morning from 9AM to 9PM Thursday night.
