Roane County students returned to school on Thursday after three unexpected days off. Officials canceled classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because of the cold spell that gripped the area.
“Hopefully, we won’t see this frigid weather again for a while,” Director of Schools Gary Aytes said.
If the frigid temperatures do return, the school system has eight more inclement weather days to use this school year.
“Those should get us through,” Aytes said.
