Henry, Patrick schools to close
Monday, March 2, 2009
By BULLETIN STAFF REPORTS -
Area schools and others have announced closings related to Sunday's snowstorm.
Henry County, Martinsville and Patrick County schools will be closed on Tuesday.
Martinsville Schools Superintendent Scott Kizner said city schools originally planned to open two hours late on Tuesday. However, he said later Monday that classes were canceled for Tuesday.
Patrick Henry Community College has canceled day classes Tuesday, but night classes will be held as scheduled, said PHCC spokesman Kris Landrum.
The Martinsville School Board meeting that had been scheduled at 5 p.m. today was canceled due to the weather. The meeting was to include a public hearing about the 2009-10 budget.
The hearing will be held next Monday during the regularly scheduled school board meeting, Kizner said.
Tim Hall, deputy Henry County administrator, said that due to expected low temperatures tonight and possible re-freezing of ice and snow on area roads, the County Administration Building will open at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Most offices in the building normally open at 8 a.m., Hall said.
