HALEYVILLE - HCS Superintendent Dr. Holly Sutherland has announced that schools will remain virtual through Wednesday due to the continued threat of hazardous travel due to winter weather.
Dr Sutherland reported by mid-day Monday that roads around the area are very wet and with rain/snow predicted through the afternoon, conditions will not be favorable for the in roads/bridges to dry before temperatures drop this evening, Sutherland noted.
ALDOT is sending trucks to treat main state roads, not all side roads where our buses would travel, she said.
Haleyville City Schools will remain virtual Tuesday, Jan 12 and will have a normally scheduled virtual day on Wednesday, Jan. 13. No students will be on campus Tuesday or Wednesday.
Teachers and staff will report on Wednesday. All students need to check virtual learning sites daily for assignments. HCS Staff will receive further instructions via email and Remind.
"We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes for our working families, but student safety is our top priority," Sutherland said.
