MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — With our temperatures dropping dangerously low, officials with the Jackson-Madison County School District say they are monitoring the weather and are discussing plans to keep children safe. School officials say as of right now classes are on normal schedule for tomorrow. The school system is suggesting parents take their children to school. But if that is not a possibility, keep your children inside as long as possible before sending them out to catch the bus. “Dress your children in layers. They can always take layers off,” said school system spokesperson Ginger Carver. “Make sure their hands are covered, their heads are covered, in order to keep them as warm as possible.”
