Some schools closed again Thursday, BA and Co-Lin have delayed start

The Brookhaven, Lincoln County, Lawrence County and Copiah County school districts are closed Thursday, while Brookhaven Academy will have a delayed start.

Students at BA should report to school at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served. Kindergarten through sixth grade should report to homeroom, while seventh through 12th grade should report to first period classes.

Mississippi School of the Arts will be on a regular schedule Thursday.

Copiah-Lincoln Community College will open all campuses for classes and offices at 9:30 a.m. Classes at 8 a.m. are canceled.

Lincoln County Superintendent Mickey Myers said school officials made the decision to cancel classes for the third straight day because of the freezing temperatures after speaking with Lincoln County Emergency Management Director Clifford Galey and members of the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors.

“Many of the roads that we must use to transport students, either by bus or private vehicles remain treacherous during this extended period of sub-freezing temps,” he said. “These emergency management officials advise against driving from now until midday tomorrow.”

All extracurricular events will be postponed as well, he said.
