GAME CHANGED. Due to a scheduling conflict, Webber High School Girls Basketball team will travel to Elverado High School this evening. There will only be 1 Varsity game starting at 6:00.
After driving district roads this morning, many are in okay condition, however, there are several which are covered in ice. As such, school is canceled for Tuesday, January 22. A decision on PM events will be made later in the day.
As other schools in the area are closing for tomorrow, I wanted to put out a message that as of now, we are still in session tomorrow. I drove many of the district roads this afternoon and found them to be in good enough condition to travel. I will be out early in the morning as well to see if there is any icing over night.
Reminder: Bluford Schools dismiss at 11:30 tomorrow and there is no school on Monday.
