So far, Columbia Public Schools will be open Friday.
Road conditions will be tested between 4 and 6 a.m. Parents can find out whether school is called off in a number of ways, including the district’s Web site, www.columbia.k12.mo.us, and CPS Alert, a text-messaging service available through the Web site. The Missourian will post an update as soon as we know more.
A list of what other area schools will be doing in response to the snowfall:
Christian Fellowship School, Heritage Academy and Stephens College Children School say they will follow what Columbia Public Schools decides.
Columbia Independent School says it will make a decision by 6 a.m. Friday. It is unlikely the school would make a decision tonight based on current weather conditions, officials said.
Good Shepherd Lutheran School says it will see what other outlying schools are doing before making a decision.
Columbia Montessori School says it will wait until at least 9 p.m. tonight and will make a decision by 6 a.m. Friday.
