There is a chance of some freezing rain in Lafayette tomorrow, and because of that, several area schools will be closing.

The administration is worried that roads, bridges and/or overpasses might collect freezing rain and ice.

Out of an abundance of caution, closing schools for Friday, December 8th is the best decision.
