School closings and delays in the Pine Belt

PINE BELT (WDAM) - The following schools will be closed or altered schedules on Friday, Jan. 18 due to dangerous driving conditions from winter weather.

  • East Jasper School District will remain closed.
  • Covington County will reopen at 10 a.m.

While the schools will be open, Crosby is asking for help from parents to keep students safe.

"We are asking parents to help in icy situations to help get the students to the main road. Buses may not be able to pick students up in the morning hour, but we are sure we will be able to take all students home in the evening," Crosby said in an email.

If parents have any questions or concerns about buses reaching their homes, they're asked to call 601-765-8247.
