MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) — Precautions for icy roads have led Berkeley County School District officials to cancel classes on Tuesday, Jan. 9. District offices will operate on a two hour delay. 

"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," district officials said in a prepared statement.

Charleston County School District has canceled classes for students Tuesday, while staff will report to work at 10 a.m., the district said in a tweet.

"After an exhaustive assessment of roadways and school campuses, the Charleston County School District has cancelled school for Tuesday, January 9, 2018 in the interest of student safety," a CCSD statement reads. "Snow and ice accumulation remains in many shaded areas of roads and school driveways throughout Charleston County that could hinder safe travel."
