BC Schools out on Tuesday due to inclement weather

An early batch of winter weather has led to the cancellation of classes at both Butler County Schools and Oak Ridge Schools on Tuesday, November 12. Precipitation started Monday afternoon and falling temperatures gradually turned the rain into sleet and light snow making for potentially slick driving conditions. Temperatures continued to fall throughout the evening, dropping several degrees below the freezing mark.



As the days grow shorter and the weather grows colder, it becomes clear that the holiday season will soon be upon us and the interim committee period will come to a close here in Frankfort. However, before Thanksgiving arrives and the season of shopping begins, we have an important upcoming holiday we should all observe: Veterans Day.
