Snow in southern Utah closes one school district, delays another

One district canceled classes on Thursday and another delayed the start of school as a winter storm dropped snow on southern Utah.

San Juan School District, which had previously announced it would delay classes on Thursday, instead closed all schools and offices for the day as the weather worsened.

The Washington County School District announced a two-hour delay and canceled morning kindergarten classes.

Classes at Dixie State University were not affected.

According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to continue in southern Utah throughout the day on Thursday with “significant accumulations.”
