Roane County Schools used its final snow day last Thursday.
Director of Schools Gary Aytes said advice from the National Weather Service determined his decision, which he announced shortly after 4 a.m.
“At 4 o’clock this morning, it was sleeting in the very western end of Roane County,” Aytes said after making his decision early Thursday.
“The National Weather Service told us it was a much higher chance that we were going to get sleet and ice.”
