Vicksburg Warren School District superintendent Chad Shealy said that schools will remain closed Thursday due to road conditions. Schools were also closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

“District leaders continue to be in regular contact with Warren County Emergency Management about weather and road conditions,” Shealy said. “Because the temperature is not expected to rise until late tomorrow afternoon, roads will remain icy and dangerous. The safety of all students and staff is extremely important to us. Therefore, all Vicksburg Warren School District schools and offices will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 18.”

The Vicksburg Catholic Schools will open, but will delay the start of school until 10 a.m. St. Aloysius principal Buddy Strickland said the school will release at the normal time and after school care will be open until 5 p.m.
