Richland One and Two close schools for Wednesday ahead of snow

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

As kids -- and their parents -- await Tuesday evening's snow fall, officials with Richland School District One and Two have decided to close school ahead of Wednesday.

Richland One's decision makes them the first major school district in the Midlands to go ahead and close school before Wednesday.

In a news release, Richland One officials say any other changes to normal school or work schedules for the remainder of the week will be announced as soon as possible.

Minutes later, Richland Two officials also bit the bullet on canceling classes for students because of the ice and snow forecasts.
