Two days remain stockpiled after Warren County Schools were closed Monday due to icy morning conditions.“Given the information I was getting from troopers and deputies, I wasn’t about to put 50 students on a bus and take a chance,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox on the cancellation of school Monday.Cox said the first warnings of slick roads came from EMS about 4:30 a.m. when there were reports some roads were getting icy. This led to schools being delayed two hours. The call went out around 6 a.m. to parents.Then came a call from state troopers warning of slick bridges and overpasses, with the hazardous conditions leading to a wreck that morning.“One officer said he nearly spun around when he hit a patch,” Cox said.
