  • The Smyrna School District and Providence Creek Academy have both cancelled school on Tuesday, March 4.
    Both schools also cancelled school on Monday.
    Smyrna School District 12-month employees are to report to work at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.
    While the Smyrna-Clayton area didn't get the original six to 10 inches of snow prediction, the area still received about three to four inches of snow. Gov. Jack Markell lifted the State of Emergency and Level 1 Driving Warning for Kent County at 6 p.m. Monday night, but DelDOT crews were still working on the roads, doing primary roads first before plowing and salting secondary and minor roads.
    With temperatures expected to hit the single digits tonight, there is a concern wet roads will turn to ice. Several roads already have a layer of ice under the snow due to the rain that came before the snow Sunday night.
    The status of the roads are why schools across the state are cancelling or opening with a delay on Tuesday morning. Providence Creek Academy specifically said in it's weather alert that school is cancelled tomorrow because of the snow and ice covered roads.
    The Delaware Emergency Management Agency announced Monday evening that road and weather conditions vary across the state with ice covered by snow in many areas. Roads across the state are slippery. Roads in Kent County are still partially covered in snow.
    Motorists should use extreme caution.
