With temperatures in the low- to mid-20s and a few snow flurries continuing to fall, Stephens County remains covered in a thin layer of ice and snow. The National Weather Service is forecasting tomorrow’s high at 27 with a wind chill value as low as -2 degrees, and in light of that news, the Breckenridge school district has canceled school again for Friday, Feb. 4.

Additionally, the basketball games originally scheduled for Friday night have tentatively been rescheduled to start at noon on Saturday in Henrietta (varsity only), the school district reports.

In the meantime, local officials are encouraging everyone to stay at home, if they can, and asking anyone who must get out to use extreme caution when they travel.
