School canceled in Tigard-Tualatin, Sherwood, Beaverton
School districts across the area are canceling classes on Thursday after reports of up to a half-foot of snow.
The Tigard-Tualatin School District, the Sherwood School District and the Beaverton School District have all canceled classes for the day.
According to a release from the Sherwood School District, the closure "based on weather forecasts, and our concern for staff and student safety."
School is also closed at Portland Community College's Sylvania Campus, Westside Christian High School, Horizon Christian schools and St. Anthony Catholic School. Westgate Christian School is open, but said it would excuse absences for students who felt their area was "unsafe."
