All Fulton County schools, with the exception of Swanton Local Schools, were closed on Monday due to the road conditions. Swanton’s start was delayed two hours.
A general 2-5 inches of snow fell on the area. Toledo Express Airport reported over 4 inches of snow. Snowfall for the winter is still below normal.
