West Virginia schools shuttered by a chemical spill that contaminated the water supply won't be open again Thursday.
The West Virginia National Guard and other organizations are pitching in to help schools properly flush out the coal-cleaning chemical. Schools also need to clean cafeterias to remove any possible left-over chemical traces.
The state Department of Education lists updated school closings on its website, www.wvde.state.wv.us.
