Tonganoxie, Basehor-Linwood school canceled for Wednesday

January 5, 2010

The threat of inclement weather has caused officials to call off school Wednesday in Basehor-Linwood and Tonganoxie school districts.

Officials made the call before 11 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Wednesday in the area, including Leavenworth County.

Wednesday's forecast calls for snow, mainly after 9 a.m. with a high near 23. Wind chill values are expected to be between minus 9 and 1. The chance of precipitation is 90 percent with new snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Basehor-Linwood's cancellation delays the opening of the new Basehor Elementary School 3-5. The building should open according to the same schedule when school resumes.
