NEWBERRY — Newberry County Schools will be under Plan C: Two-hour delay/employees report for Jan. 7 regular time.
Due to the possibility of extreme weather conditions, all Newberry County Schools will operate on a two-hour delayed schedule. Buses will run two hours later than the regular route time and schools will begin two hours later than usual. Pre-kindergarten classes which meet only in the morning will not be held. All employees are to report at their regular time as conditions permit.
Unusually cold temperatures will affect the area throughout this week, especially Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Tuesday lows will be in the middle teens and the high will reach just above freezing. Wednesday will see a warming trend with lows in the higher teens and highs being in the 40’s. Any residual water on surfaces will freeze.
Care should be taken to insure pets are well insulated from the cold as well as vulnerable plants. Uninsulated pipes should be covered or allow water to drip to prevent freezing and bursting. Only use approved heating devices indoors and insure those are away from flammable materials.
The temperatures should rise toward the end of the week with Tuesday and Wednesday being the coldest.
