Schools closed Wednesday

Note: After this story was posted, Rowan-Salisbury officials announced the makeup day had been changed to Feb. 14.
The Rowan-Salisbury School System will be closed Wednesday for students and staff due to weather conditions and all afternoon and evening activities are canceled.
The scheduled make up day will be this Saturday, Feb. 1.
Kannapolis City Schools will also be closed, but it will be an optional work day for staff.
The scheduled make-up day will be Monday, Feb. 17.

Increasingly slick roads Tuesday evening caused multiple accidents around Rowan County, but none were reported with serious injuries. Still, even law enforcement and others responding to those accidents were warned of icy conditions on rural routes as early as 4:30 p.m.
Snow started falling in Rowan County around 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Local accumulation was expected to be much less than elsewhere in the state. The National Weather Service forecast said Rowan County residents could wake up to 3 inches of snow on the ground, though Charlotte-based meteorologists said it could be half that amount.
Local schools dismissed early and cancelled after-school activities, and school system officials said they’d keep an eye on the weather and decide by early Wedneday morning whether to cancel classes.
Livingstone College closed at 4 p.m. and all evening activities and classes are canceled tonight.
