In a memo to parents, the district anticipates icy conditions in subdivisions Thursday morning. The low tonight is expected to be about 40 degrees according to the National Weather Service with a high of 45 Thursday and the possibility of rain and snow Thursday evening and on Friday.

Private schools and Kannapolis City Schools have yet to make their own announcements on delays or cancellations for Thursday.
