Superintendent of Shelby Eastern Schools Dr. Todd Hitchcock has announced  the closing of schools at Morristown and Waldron for Thursday, February 3. 


Also, tonight's girls basketball sectional quarterfinals at Waldron have been postponed.


Per IHSAA guidance the sectional schedule gets moved back one day with each postponement.  If the games cannot be played Thursday evening, they will be postponed an additional day until they can be played.


On Tuesday, Rising Sun defeated Oldenburg to advance to Friday's scheduled semifinal where the Shiners will play #1 Waldron.  The other semifinal is still to be determined with Hauser vs Jac-Cen-Del and Morristown vs Southwestern in the other quarterfinals.


As for SES canceling school on Thursday, the lost instructional day will be made up on the built-in snow day of February 21 (Presidents' Day).


All practices and club activities at Shelby Eastern schools are to be wrapped up and away from campus by 5:00 pm Wednesday.
