UPPER VALLEY – Continued snowy and windy weather is prompting area schools to delay their morning start time.

In Fremont County, plans call to start school two hours later than normal, reported the district on its Facebook page.

“Due to the difficulty of opening the roads, road closures, and slick roads, we will be starting school at North Fremont Junior and Senior High School and Ashton Elementary School two hours late,” the district said. “We will run the buses two hours later than normal.”

While three schools will start later than normal, all schools on the district’s south side will open at their regular times.

If weather continues to worsen, school might be cancelled on Wednesday, it said.

“We may decide to close school if weather does not cooperate. Please be safe, and we will keep you posted on further developments,” said the district.

In the Sugar-Salem School District, officials there report they’ll also start school two hours later than normal because of road closures.

“We will reassess in the early morning to see if school needs to be cancelled of road conditions get worse,” it said.

The Madison School District Superintendent Geoffrey Thomas says that he plans to start school as normal on Wednesday. 

"No delays. We are having school tomorrow barring a major change for the worse," he said. 

 As more information is made available, the Standard Journal will update this story.
