School closings and delays

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The arctic air that is moving through our area will have a huge effect on temperatures tonight and tomorrow. Much of the overnight and early Thursday morning will feel like SINGLE DIGITS!!!

Due to the cold forecast, the Leake County schools will not open until 9:45 Thursday morning. Buses will run 2 hours later than normal.

All schools in the McLaurin School Zone will be closed Thursday because of a power outage. This includes McLaurin Elementary and McLaurin High School.

All other RCSD schools will be OPEN.

Due to a power outage at Vicksburg Jr. High School and Warren Central Jr. High School the Vicksburg Jr. High students will be relocated to Vicksburg High School and the Warren Central Jr. High students will be relocated to Warren Central High School. 

When the power is restored and the heat is a comfortable temperature the students will be transported by bus back to the Junior High Schools.

Any car riders will be transported by bus to the High Schools if the parents do not wish to take them to the High School.
