Anderson County Schools will remain closed Thursday, Feb. 14, the district's transportation director, Chuck Fletcher, announced Wednesday afternoon.

Anderson County schools will be closed Thursday, said Larry Basham, assistant superintendent.

Some of the county's roads still have snow and ice leftover from the winter storm that began around 5 p.m. Monday, Basham said.

"We would have buses going down those roads, and I wouldn't feel good about doing that," he said.

Basham said officials had hoped to be back in school, but decided against it early Wednesday afternoon.

"If we hadn't made the decision this afternoon, we would have been out driving around at 3:30 or 4 in the morning checking the roads," he said. "We just decided we couldn't go, but we're hoping to go Friday."
