I believe Eastern was closed due to a power outage not related to the snow.

I received a call this morning from Linton Elementary at 6 am telling me there would be a 2 hour delay. Last year my kids went to wrv and I never received any notification of delays or closings I had to watch the morning news. Thank you LINTON STOCTON SCHOOL CORP.
