Original post, 6 a.m.

Due to poor road conditions, all ASD schools are closed today.


The district has been monitoring conditions all morning and initially decided the conditions were passable. However, rain has caused the roads to progressively worsen and Superintendent Ed Graff made the call to close in the interest of safety.
