Monday’s decision to call off school in Iola Tuesday because of the bitterly cold temperatures will not affect the scheduling for the start of the War on 54 midseason tournament later in the day. 

Matt Baumwart, IHS athletic director, said the tournament is still a go.

Forecasts are for temperatures to warm slightly through the day, with temperatures nearing 20 degrees by late afternoon.
