Wake County schools to open on a two-hour delay Tuesday

Wake County school officials have announced that schools will open on a two-hour delay Tuesday because of the road conditions.

School officials say they’ll re-evaluate before 7 a.m. if additional changes are needed Tuesday.

Combined with the three-hour early dismissal on Monday, Wake may not be able to avoid making up the five hours lost this week. We’ll probably find out at Tuesday’s school board meeting if another makeup day is needed.

Wake has lost so much time, seven days in all, from snow days this school year that the district is hurting trying to stay above the state’s minimum requirement of 1,025 hours of instruction.
