CHIPLEY — Washington County Schools will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 26.  Wednesday, Feb. 27,will be determined tomorrow afternoon, said Superintendent Joe Taylor on Monday. Taylor said another rain system is expected to move through the area tonight and the schools are being closed due to the possible hazards of running the buses in the morning.

"We can't predict what tomorrow will be like," Taylor said, "but we don't want to send the buses out on the back roads." Taylor said the buses are built for safety, but they can damage the roadways if the ground is too wet. "They'll tear a road up like nobody's business."
