(WSPA) – Upstate schools have announced eLearning for Wednesday due to significant amounts of ice and snow on the roads.

ANDERSON COUNTY

Due to hazardous road conditions in certain areas of the district, Anderson School Districts 1-5 will be having an eLearning day Wednesday.

BUNCOMBE COUNTY

All Buncombe County Schools will operate under an asynchronous remote learning plan on Wednesday, Jan. 19, and it will be an optional teacher workday, officials said. This is due to the severity of the weekend’s winter storm that has left many secondary roads difficult to travel.

According to school officials, students will learn independently tomorrow. By 10 a.m., teachers will upload assignments into their Learning Management System (LMS). Students may work at their own pace, however, assignments must be completed and turned in within five days.

If parents are able to travel safely, breakfast and lunch will be available for pick up at their child’s school between 11 and 1 p.m. Please call your cafeteria manager to place an order, BCS said.
