Williamson County Schools have been in a stalemate on snow days for the last two years. Counties around middle Tennessee, however, seem to have all the luck when it comes to inclement weather and breaks from school due to ice and snow.

Looking at the Williamson County district calendar, the next break available for students is January 15, in observance of Martin Luther, Jr. day. After that Monday, the next chance off of school is spring break, and that is not until the last week of March. Williamson County needs snow!

The delay/closing policy says that school can be delayed, released early, or canceled if the driving conditions are deemed “hazardous,” according to policy on the WCS Website.  Hazardous roads commonly accumulate overnight after a drop in temperature, freezing the moisture on the roads and creating a layer of ice.

Unfortunately, things are not looking up for this county’s students and staff. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the whole month of January is said to be rainy with mild temperatures. Mild temperatures being the average of 46 degrees. February looks the same way: rainy, seasonal, and occasional sunny periods.

The outlook is sunny with a wintry mix in the forecast for Friday. Will Wilco kids be able to sled down their hills? Only time will tell.

Wilco can only cross their fingers and wear their pajamas inside out in hope for a winter miracle.
