Extremely cold temperatures lead to school closures

Schools in both the Logan and Cache school districts have been canceled Friday because of extremely cold temperatures. As of 6:15 a.m. temperatures in the area were at -24 degrees and both districts were struggling to get vehicles operational.

Fast Forward Charter High School, Bear River Charter School, InTech Collegiate High School, Edith Bowen Laboratory School, the Cache Employment and Training Center and the West Side School District are also closed. A morning low temperature of -37 degrees was reported from Fairview, Idaho.

The school districts also have concern about children safety at bus stops because of the extremely cold temperatures. 

However, Thomas Edison Charter School is reporting on their Facebook page that classes will resume a normal schedule Friday. They do not rely on buses. Bridgerland Applied Technology College is also planning on a normal schedule Friday, however they are suggesting that students check with their individual teachers to verify the status of their classes for the day.

Some schools were delayed Wednesday because of the heavy snow storm and all completely canceled on Thursday as crews continued to dig out from the snow.

Make-up days from this week’s closures will be announced at a later time.

On a side note, temperature <a href=”https://climate.usurf.usu.edu/PeterSinks/index.php” target=”_blank”>reports from Peter Sinks</a> in Logan Canyon indicate an overnight low of -53 degrees.
