Columbia County schools will remain closed Thursday, due to persistent icy conditions on area roads, officials announced this morning.
Officials also said school employees, including twelve month personnel, should not report to work Thursday and that all school system activities and events would be canceled.
All Columbia County government offices are closed today as well.
More information will be made available Thursday about the possible closings or delays for Friday.
A rare winter storm dumped about 2 inches of snow across most of the county Tuesday evening, with accumulations above that in some areas. All county roads were open this morning, but icy conditions were widespread and officials urged residents to stay off roadways unless it was absolutely necessary.
