The district said they will send out a transportation crew to check road conditions as early as 2 a.m. Thursday.
They say an anticipated decision could be made by 5 a.m. as to whether to delay or cancel schools or after-school activities.
Decisions about morning closures and delays involve monitoring reports from the National Weather Service the day and night before and sending out members of our transportation team starting as early as 2 a.m. to check road conditions throughout Davidson County, with an anticipated decision by 5 a.m. as to whether to delay or cancel schools or after-school activities for the day. If there is certainty about inclement weather creating dangerous road conditions mid-day, a decision might be made in the morning about what to do for the rest of the day.
