Due to forecast, schools to close at 5 p.m.

With snow, freezing rain, and sleet in the forecast, Unionville-Chadds Ford School District Superintendent John C. Sanville announced that all schools will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 9, so that travel can be completed during daylight hours.

The Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board work session scheduled for Feb. 9 was also canceled. It will be made up as part of of the Feb. 17 regular school board meeting. There will also be a meeting of the Curriculum and Educational Technology Committee.

“Mondays have been bit hard by cancellations.  I am grateful for the support and positive attitudes of all impacted by these changes,” the statement said.  “The dedicated folks who sponsor and coach music, sports, club meetings and other activities work hard to put together schedules and calendars- and repeated cancellations are frustrating. Fortunately we all share the same interest in keeping students, faculty, and all using our facilities safe.”

According to the National Weather Service, less than half an inch of snow accumulation is expected; however, as the mercury dips below freezing, wet surfaces are likely to be hazardous, especially on walkways and back roads. Temperatures are predicted to hit a low of 26 with a north wind around 11 mph.

No precipitation is predicted on Tuesday, which is expected to be cloudy with a high near 37, the National Weather Service said.
