All three public school districts in Barnwell County will be on a 2-hour delay and Jefferson Davis Academy will be on a 1-hour dealy on Thursday, Jan. 18, according to Emergency Management Director Roger Riley.

"While whatever snow we got will be gone, the potential for black ice, particularly on roads and bridges, will rise greatly starting tonight. All the school leadership felt it would be safer to delay the opening of schools in the morning," he said.
