Teachers go into school buildings while students stay home in some districts, and many roads are slick.
School closures are possible on Tuesday too, Storm Team4’s Lauryn Ricketts said she expects.
It looks like most schools will likely be closed for Mon (even some virtual schools considering teachers go INTO the school to teach) and possibly Tuesday as it will be icy and still a little snowy in spots. Wednesday will be bitterly cold and icy in areas but precip will be over pic.twitter.com/Cs0XNG080x
