RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Despite snow moving out of the area, local school delays and closings in North Carolina have been announced for Monday due to frigid temperatures and possible slick roads.
Bladen County Schools were the first to call in a two-hour delay for its district Monday due to the weekend’s winter weather. Bladen County is just south of Fayetteville and adjacent to Cumberland County.
Here is a list of central North Carolina school systems that will be closed or have remote learning Monday:
- Chatham County Schools will operate as a remote learning day for students and a remote workday for staff.
- Durham Public Schools will have a remote learning day. Students and school-based staff will have online instruction. Graduation practice Monday evening is recheduled for Feb 2.

Black ice and refreezing was a concern Sunday morning and with little sunshine and temperatures in the low 40s that will trickle into Monday, some counties could decide to delay – or cancel.
When announcing Monday’s closure, Johnston County school officials said there are “many areas that have shaded roadways that are unsafe for travel, especially by our school buses.”
