LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Public Schools announced Tuesday night classes and activities are cancelled for Wednesday, February 20th.

The district said in a release, "A decision to cancel classes in inclement weather is always made in the best interest of safety for our students and staff. Lincoln is under a winter storm warning Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning with a forecast of new snow accumulation of 5 to 9 inches - and snow could be heavy at times. When LPS makes decisions to close in inclement weather, the school district considers challenging conditions for students, as well as potentially hazardous travel conditions, and the ability to clear sidewalks and parking lots at 65 schools and programs."
