Due to predictions of inclement weather affecting the Cape Fear Region overnight and into Friday, two area school systems will be operating on a delay.

All Brunswick County Schools will be operating on a two-hour delay for both staff and students on Friday, Jan. 22, according to school officials.

Essential administrative and operations staff should report on schedule as weather conditions permit. The school system will continue to monitor the situation overnight and provide an update on any additional delay or cancellation at 6 a.m. Friday.

In Pender County, Penderlea School will also operate on a two-hour delay tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 22. Childcare programs at Topsail Elementary and Cape Fear Elementary will also operate on a two-hour delay.

The school system’s Central Office will operate on a normal schedule. Central Office employees should use extreme caution when traveling to work and notify their supervisor if they cannot make it to work on time.

New Hanover County schools also have a teacher workday on Friday, but two schools, Codington Elementary and Eaton Elementary, are still in session. All of the system’s students and staff will operate on a two-hour delay.
