Students in the Carbon County School District saw their three-day weekend turn into a four-day weekend when classes were canceled Friday because of snow, ice and road conditions.
Schools will be closed Monday for the Presidents Day Holiday.
In an email, Superintendent Lance Hatch said he considered delaying the start of school Friday by two hours, but decided conditions warranted the closure.
“Making up a Snow Day is not pleasant for anyone and causes many different levels of inconvenience,” he wrote. “However, that problem is small weighed against the safety of students, staff, and parents who would be forced to navigate treacherous roads to continue with school as usual.”
