Knox County Schools delayed Monday; Blount County Schools closed

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- There are still some icy roads, so Knox County Schools will operate on a one-hour delay Monday morning. Buses will also be delayed one hour, but staff must report on time. Blount County Schools have also decided to close Monday.

East Tennessee has had a ten-day cold snap with below-freezing temperatures. Monday is expected to be the first day we'll see temperatures above freezing again.

    I almost agree with Robin--Where is the Superintendents mind? If children are hunt to whom will the responsiability go?

    I can NOT believe all the other area schools are closed and Knox are open. Does the Superintendent think our ice will magically disappear when the buses carrying OUR children gets close? It seems like the other Districts have a sane person in charge. Maybe it's time for a change in Knoxville before we become another headline on HLN or CNN for dumb people who let their children go to school in this.
