Ten-month employees at schools on traditional calendars in the Guilford County School District are taking a vacation day as maintenance crews deal with the aftermath of last week’s winter storm. The district reported last night that at least 18 schools were without power, while others were contending with HVAC problems, and downed power lines and trees.

Meanwhile, the tweet yesterday from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools was: “All schools have power, so do your homework. :)”

Greensboro City Council holds a work session in the Plaza Level Conference Room of the Melvin Municipal Office Building, located at 300 W.
