Vicksburg Warren School District superintendent Chad Shealy confirmed that schools will remain closed Wednesday due to inclement weather and poor road conditions.

“VWSD Administrators have been in constant contact with Warren County Emergency Management about the wintry weather and road conditions,” Shealy said. “Because of low temperatures, extremely slippery road conditions are expected to remain through tomorrow. Therefore, all VWSD schools and offices will be closed tomorrow.”

VWSD’s policy, which follows state law, does not require days cancelled due to weather to be made up pending approval by the Board of Trustees. All district employees will also be paid for missed days.

Porter’s Chapel Academy and Vicksburg Catholic Schools will also be closed Wednesday due to weather. St. Aloysius principal Buddy Strickland said after talking to emergency management it was determined that the roads would not be safe enough to travel Wednesday leading to the decision to close.
