School Opening Delayed Two Hours on Monday

Emergency Management in Montgomery County has advised of potential flooding of roadways in low-lying areas. Due to flooding on some roads in the area, schools will be delayed two hours on Monday, January 14. This delay will allow for improved visibility so that drivers may be cautious if road conditions are hazardous. Some bus routes may still be affected even with the delayed opening and vehicles may find some roads not passable. Buses will not attempt to drive on roads with standing water.  Again, school opening tomorrow is delayed by two hours, which means students who ride the bus should be at their bus stops two hours after their normal time.
