Channel 5 News Posted: Jan 12, 2011 12:59 PM CST Updated: Jan 12, 2011 4:43 PM CST NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro-Nashville Public schools will be closed on Thursday, according to an announcement on Wednesday afternoon. The statement said the goal is to be back in school Friday. The school system said that while many roads are safe to travel, several neighborhoods and school parking lots are still covered in ice and snow. On Thursday, the school system's Transportation Department and bus drivers will move buses to safe locations to ensure they are ready to transport on Friday morning. Several other mid-state school systems have also closed their doors for Thursday due to continued winter weather conditions. This will be the fourth snow day for many school districts to be out of school. Cheatham, Maury, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, and Wilson Counties decided early Wednesday afternoon to close. Montgomery County Schools students went back to classes on Wednesday after an unscheduled four days off because of snow. They'll have to make one of them up on Monday, which had been scheduled off as a holiday. In Nashville, the public school students will make up a snow day on Presidents' Day. Other make-up days haven't been determined. In Johnson City, the city schools will be in session on three days administrators had planned to not hold classes. Those include Monday - Martin Luther King Day - as well as Feb. 21, March 14 and April 22.
