Heeding warnings to stay home and avoid the dangerous, icy conditions predicted to greet Austinites this morning, most area schools announced they will be closed Thursday. Austin Independent School District and Austin Community College will be closed Thursday and Friday; St. Edward’s and Huston-Tillotson universities will shift to online classes Thursday and Friday; and UT Austin has canceled classes for Thursday, with plans for Friday to be announced this afternoon. KUT Austin has a comprehensive list of area school closures. Capital Metro announced Wednesday that it “must suspend all non-emergency services on Thursday” for the safety of its staff and customers. The transit authority will instead be concentrating on transporting community members to warming shelters and other essential medical and safety services.
