school bus webref

Students in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester County District 2 will get another snow day Tuesday following last week's winter storm. 

The districts announced the closures Monday, citing unsafe driving conditions. 

"Safety and security of all students is our first priority," Berkeley County schools said on its website. "After consulting with the Department of Transportation, we feel it is in the best interest of safety for our staff, student drivers and bus drivers to cancel school on Tuesday."

Berkeley County schools faculty and staff will work on a two-hour delay Tuesday. Charleston County schools staff will report at 10 a.m.

Charleston County Schools Superintendent Gerrita Postlewait announced the closure during the Committee of the Whole meeting. Bus drivers drove their routes Monday and determined some roads were not safe. 

"Snow and ice accumulation remains in many shaded areas of roads and school driveways throughout Charleston County that could hinder safe travel," the district said on its website. 

In Dorchester County, District 2 joined the list of district closures shortly before 6 p.m. 

"Staff and county crews have worked today to clear icy areas but after final inspections late today and in an abundance of caution for the safety of students and staff schools will be closed and all extracurricular activities and extended day is cancelled," district spokeswoman Pat Raynor said in a statement.

Students in District 4 will return to school Tuesday, Dorchester County said on Twitter.
