PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Jan. 30, 2009) — Several area schools remained closed Friday, but students in the largest district, the Waynesville R-VI School District, will be attending classes. Buses will be running only on snow routes, however.

Classes in the Laquey R-V and Plato R-V school districts will not be held on Friday. All other schools in Pulaski County remained open as of 5:30 a.m., but parents should confirm details with each school district since some functions may be cancelled.

At 8:30 p.m. Thursday night, Fort Leonard Wood officials reported that Friday would be a regular workday with no closures or delayed reporting required. Road conditions on the installation ranged from amber to green conditions, with snowplowing focused on parking lots.

Amber road conditions mean that driving is difficult to hazardous, according to the Fort Leonard Wood emergency operations center. Drivers should slow to 10 mph below posted speeds in order to maintain traction and safe stopping distance.

According to the Springfield office of the National Weather Service, residents of the Fort Leonard Wood area can expect a chance of flurries after 9 a.m. with mostly cloudy conditions and high temperatures around 35 degrees. Wind chills may drop to 14 degrees, however. Tonight’s weather conditions are expected to be partly cloudy with a low around 25 degrees.
