Catawba County and Newton-Conover City Schools will both be closed for the second-straight day on Thursday.
N-CCS Superintendent Dr. David Stegall send out an email around 3 p.m. on Wednesday notifying local media of the system's decision.
Catawba County Schools announced on their website around the same time that they are also closed on Thursday.
Both school systems will be holding optional teacher workdays.
Stegall said in the email that N-CCS's teacher workday would start at 9:30 a.m. and that all employees should use the main entrances only, which will be de-iced and cleared.
Catawba County School employees are also asked to report on a two-hour delay if they choose to work the optional work day.
