BEND, OR -- School districts across Central Oregon reacted to this morning's winter weather conditions.  Jefferson County 509-J, Culver, Crook County, Sisters and Redmond schools all closed, while Bend-La Pine schools remained on schedule.

 

Central Oregon Community College and OSU-Cascades have cancelled Thursday evening classes, as well.  Classes scheduled after 3 p.m. are canceled and all campuses will close at 5 p.m.  That includes libraries, computer labs, gym and other facilities in Bend, Redmond, Madras and Prineville will close.

 

Redmond Area Parks and Recreation's activity center will close at 3 p.m.  The Redmond pool closed at noon.  All evening programs are canceled.  The Boys and Girls Clubs of Redmond/Terrebonne will remain open with their all-day program today.

 

Bend-La Pine Schools will release all middle and high schools 10 minutes early to allow bus drivers extra time to drive routes this afternoon. Elementary schools will dismiss at normal times.  District officials warn afternoon drop-off could be delayed as drivers slow down for changing road and weather conditions.

 

Central Oregon remains under a winter storm warning until 10 p.m. Friday, with significantly higher snow accumulations than originally predicted.  The National Weather Service now says we could see 7-10 inches before the storm moves out tomorrow night.  Precipitation could change to freezing rain this evening, returning to snow overnight.
