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.
Webber Trojans advance in the Midland Trail Conference Tournament with a 50-48 win over Wayne City. They will play the 7:30 game Thursday night at Christ Our Rock Lutheran against Odin.

The high school boys basketball game scheduled for tonight against Sandoval has been postponed due to impending weather.
