EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The EVSC has canceled after school events due to the forecasted snow.

Here is the note sent to parents:

The National Weather Service is predicting the possibility of rain changing to snow and ice later this afternoon in our area, making travel potentially dangerous.

Rain is expected to turn to snow late this afternoon, and temperatures are expected to drop.

You can monitor our closings list to see if any schools are letting out early, or if churches have canceled for Wednesday night.

Henderson County Schools say they will do virtual learning Thursday and Friday due to staffing levels and the weather. They say all HCS childcare locations will be closed.

Grab and Go meals will be available on Friday from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at A.B. Chandler, Bend Gate, Jefferson, and Spottsville elementary schools.
