CACHE COUNTY, Utah — Schools in the Box Elder, Cache County, and Logan school districts will start two hours later than normal on Tuesday, Jan. 31, due to a wind chill warning.
According to the National Weather Service, Cache Valley could see wind chills as low as -30 degrees Fahrenheit Tuesday morning. In Box Elder County, those winds could get as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit.

There will be no AM preschool or kindergarten and BTECH buses will not run, but those students will not be penalized for being absent Tuesday morning, according to the website.
“We encourage parents to also take actions as appropriate to respond to cold weather conditions, such as dressing children warmly, driving children to bus stops, etc. We live in a large valley and conditions can vary widely, so family-based decisions are important as colder temperatures are going to be with us for at least a few days,” the website stated.
