Blackman High School will be closed on Friday. James Evans with Rutherford County Schools tells NewsRadio WGNS Blackman High School cancellation is due to ongoing air conditioning repairs.
He says heavy rain has caused the repairs to be delayed because it is unsafe for workers to be in the ditch, which could collapse.
Evans adds with outside temperatures forecast to be in the upper 70's Friday, "we are compelled to close the school tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 23."
He stresses all other Rutherford County Schools will be open on Friday. Also, the teacher recruitment fair at Blackman on Saturday, will proceed as scheduled.
