Orange County Schools will be closed Tuesday, January 30.

Officials initially announced a two-hour delay “due to the possibility of hazardous road conditions presented by freezing temperatures and precipitation” but moved to a closure just before 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Tuesday will be an optional teacher workday.

Some precipitation fell during the overnight hours and temperatures were hovering just above freezing as of 5:45 a.m. Tuesday, but the possibility of dipping below freezing and causing issues on the roadways was enough for school officials to call for the delay which eventually moved to a closure.

This post will be updated with any additional information if other closings are announced.
