(WMBF) – Marlboro Academy in Bennettsville, SC will operate on a 2 hour delay Monday, January 25th. The school announced the delay early Monday morning.

Scotland County Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay for students and staff on Monday, January 25.

According to a Facebook post made Sunday afternoon by the North Carolina district: "Much of the ice that has thawed today has accumulated on the roads. With temperatures dropping below freezing tonight, it has the potential to re-freeze and create the very dangerous black ice. The safety of our students and staff are of the utmost importance. The delay will allow time for the ice to melt on the roads and our students and staff to get to school and work safely."

Stay tuned to WMBF News for any other cancellations or delays that are announced by area schools, districts and government offices.
