Administrators, maintenance, and custodial staff should plan to arrive at regular time. All other faculty and staff should arrive on the two-hour delay.

Murfreesboro City Schools

Robertson County Schools

Rutherford County Schools
Opening 2 Hours Late

Message from RCS:

We will be operating with bus driver and parent discretion. What this means is bus drivers will not go down a road if they experience hazardous, impassable conditions. Likewise, parents can use their discretion if they feel they cannot safely get their children to school because of conditions in their area. Parents, please be cautious when it comes to your teenage drivers. If you don’t think it is safe for them to drive, please don’t let them do so.

We will be excusing any absences or tardies because of the potential road conditions.

Sumner County Schools

Williamson County Schools
Opening 2 Hours Late

Transportation staff and others have been traveling city streets and county roads today to see if improvements in road conditions will allow us to transport students to school tomorrow.

With the warmer temperatures and rain moving into the area, Williamson County Schools will begin two hours late on Tuesday, January 23, 2024. That means if the bus normally picks up your child at seven in the morning, the bus will pick up at nine. Schools will dismiss at their regular times.

Bus drivers will operate with driver discretion and may alter a route, if needed. Transportation will notify families if routes are altered.

Staff should follow the snow day protocol, reporting one hour late.

Wilson County Schools

All 12-month employees should report and Kids Club will operate on their snow schedule.

District leadership staff has observed areas in the county, very common to school day travel, that are still experiencing ice packed road conditions with extremely slippery surfaces. We have very low confidence that tomorrow would produce a safe day of school related travel for everyone.
