The sudden snow storm that hit the state made it impossible for buses to take students home on Tuesday. Here in East Alabama, Etowah County schools had the same problem. Superintendent Alan Cosby says he is grateful for all the help from the community. Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson says his deputies worked until midnight getting area students home. School officials in Oxford expressed their gratitude to all the system’s employees for their dedication to the safety of our children.
