Weather forces school closings in Lubbock, late openings elsewhere

A blustery winter storm packing two to four inches of snow prompted Lubbock area schools to cancel classes and many others across the South Plains to open their doors late. Blowing snow and slickened roads made driving dangerous. Lubbock ISD cancelled classes as well as all extracurricular events because road conditions were not expected to improve right away. Other schools cancelling classes today included Frenship, Cooper, Idalou, Slaton, Roosevelt,  Shallowater, New Deal, Rise Academy, Lubbock Christian, Christ the King Cathedral, Richard Milburn Academy, Highland Baptist, Southcrest Christian, My Father’s House, Trinity Christian and All-Saints Episcopal. Texas Tech cancelled classes until 11 a.m. Two-hour late openings were pretty much the rule for other schools around the area. Those late openings included Ralls, Meadow, Tahoka, Wilson, Post, Spur, Smyer, Levelland, Springlake-Earth,  Littlefield, Morton, Wellman, Whitharral, Brownfield, Borden County, Amherst, and Jayton, among others. A Boy Scouts breakfast at South Plains College this morning was postponed until next Tuesday.
