The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Rutherford County and surrounding areas. A winter storm approaching our area overnight tonight is expected to produce significant ice accumulations on area roadways, trees, and power lines through mid- to late-morning tomorrow. Dangerous travel conditions and downed trees and power lines are likely. In anticipation of those conditions, Rutherford County Schools will observe a remote learning day for all students at all grade levels, and an Optional Teacher Workday for all school system employees, on Thursday, February 18. Eligible employees who face hazardous travel conditions tomorrow are authorized to telework pursuant to policies 7503 and 7550. Eligible employees who elect to telework tomorrow should promptly communicate with their immediate supervisors regarding those arrangements.
Following the winter storm that affected our region this weekend, our school transportation team has identified isolated patches of black ice on roads within our county, along with some roads where lanes have been narrowed by downed trees. Rutherford County Schools will operate on a two-hour delay today in order to provide school bus and other drivers the benefit of sunlight and improved visibility as they travel along area roadways this morning.
