School districts announce closings for Friday

Posted: Updated:
ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

School districts around the Midlands have announced they are closing Friday due to deteriorating road conditions in the area following Tuesday and Wednesday's winter storms.

Orangeburg Consolidated School Districts 3, 4, and 5 will be closed because of "icy conditions, fallen trees/debris in roadways, and power outages associated with the overnight ice storm," according to a release from the districts.

"These conditions impair the ability of school buses, parents, students, and staff to reach school safely," said the release.

Richland One has also decided to close Friday.

Richland Two says they'll be closed Friday, but students will not return until Wednesday due to district holidays on Monday and Tuesday.

Lexington School Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 have also announced a closure for all their schools.
