A spokesperson for the school system says it is experiencing several weather related issues in a number of its school buildings. This includes issues with water pipes and heating systems.

The low temperatures have also left one-fourth of its school buses inoperable.

Officials say holding school would pose a potential safety risk to students and staff.

School administrators, custodial, maintenance, security personnel and central office employees should report to work at the normal time.
