CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Many Lowcountry children enjoyed a "Snow Day" on Wednesday and will do so again Thursday. School districts announced that they will remain closed through Thursday after frozen conditions have put a chill on the Charleston area.

Students at schools all around the Lowcountry are going to get to enjoy a second full day off, as the following school districts have canceled Thursday classes:
  • Berkeley County School District
  • Charleston County School District
  • Colleton County School District
  • Dorchester District 2
  • Dorchester District 4 
  • Georgetown County School District
  • Williamsburg County School District
Officials say the decision was made to close the schools Thursday due to recommendations by the Emergency Operations Center and the potential for icy roads and dangerous driving conditions. Many of the areas bridges and roads were closed most of the day, making travel near impossible. Roads that were open, were icy and unsafe to travel on.
