GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County Schools made a decision just after 1:30 p.m. to dismiss schools early on Friday.

Earlier the school district had said the weather moving into the Upstate would not impact school operations.

Below is a statement school district spokesperson Beth Brotherton released about the decision:

We are receiving reports of rapidly dropping temperatures in Oconee and Pickens Counties.  We expect similar conditions shortly in Greenville County.  As a result we are dismissing early.  We are mobilizing buses and drivers as quickly as possible.  We will begin loading students as soon as buses arrive at the schools.

  • Elementary schools will dismiss at 2pm
  • Middle Schools and High Schools will dismiss at 2:30pm
  • All afterschool and evening events cancelled
