After checking roads this afternoon, extremely icy conditions are on some primary and secondary roads across northern Greenville County. There are also isolated issues in other areas. Since road conditions are worse in northern Greenville County, we are implementing a new delayed opening process for Tuesday, January 26 to address this unique situation.
All Greenville County schools will operate on a two-hour delay. School buildings will not open until two hours later than normal. Also, individual road conditions vary so it is your decision whether or not to send your child to school. Do not hesitate to keep your child at home if you believe that is safest. If you decide to keep your child at home, please call your school on Tuesday to inform them of your child’s absence. Your child’s absence will be excused and missed work may be made up.
For parents living in northern Greenville County, bus transportation will not be provided for students who reside in the following school attendance areas: Blue Ridge Middle, Blue Ridge High, Gateway Elementary, Heritage Elementary, Mountain View Elementary, Northwest Middle, Skyland Elementary, Slater-Marietta Elementary, Tigerville Elementary, and Travelers Rest High. This includes students both assigned to these schools and those attending other schools on choice.
