ROCKWALL -- Rockwall ISD has closed school for Friday, Feb. 7.

The district said administrators spent Thursday evening driving bus routes and side streets. With thick sheets of ice still covering many side roads and school parking lots, a district spokeswoman said they felt they'd rather be safe than sorry and keep students and staff off the roads.

Main thoroughfares in Rockwall are clear, and the district hopes some melting Friday afternoon will make neighborhoods more passable.

This is Rockwall ISD's second snow day this year.
