Schools, businesses and government offices in Kansas have closed or announced plans to start late after another round of snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and winter weather advisory across northern and eastern parts of the state. The Kansas Department of Transportation says many roads in the state are partially or completely snow covered.

Gov. Laura Kelly issued a delayed start for non-essential employees in the Capitol’s Shawnee County.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Kingman-Norwich district canceled classes with a parody of the song “Let it Go” from Disney’s movie “Frozen.” Several other school districts also called off classes, including Lawrence, Topeka, Manhattan-Ogden, Atchison and Shawnee Mission.

Emporia State University, the University of Kansas and Baker University announced plans to start late, as did the Army’s Fort Riley.
