Ice covers a school bus on New Town Avenue in south Columbia on Monday. After a weekend ice storm, Mid-Missouri is expected to see 5-7 inches of snow Tuesday. Columbia Public Schools announced schools are closed Tuesday.

COLUMBIA — MU, Columbia and Stephens colleges and Columbia Public Schools canceled Tuesday classes, citing the winter storm warning from the National Weather Service.

The city of Columbia offices are also closed.

The Schools District said the impending winter storm would compound the road problems that prompted Monday's school closings.

The School District also declared Tuesday an emergency weather day, according to a media release, which means employees who would normally come to work during a snow day should stay home.

MU canceled all classes for Tuesday, according to the MU News Bureau. The Student Center, the Student Recreation Complex and residential dining halls will remain open. Ellis Library will remain open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but no services will be available. MU branch libraries are closed.

Columbia Transit offices also will be closed Tuesday. This includes all fixed routes, the downtown FastCAT and para-transit services, according to a news release from the service.

University bus lines, including TigerLine and Black and Gold routes, will not be in service.

Stephens College has canceled Tuesday's classes, according to a tweet.

Columbia College has decided to close its day campus and canceled night classes.

Supervising editor is Elizabeth Brixey.
