    From a Nooksack Valley school district email:

    Because of lingering snow on side roads and some final steps to ensure our schools are ready to reopen the elementary schools and middle school will run 2-hours late, Monday January 3rd.
    **Reminder, the high school is cancelled tomorrow as staff prepares to go fully remote for the week due to damages from broken pipes.
    Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
