Rock Hill Schools will be closed Monday due to weather conditions, according to the school district's Director of Communications Mychal Frost.
Clover School District, Chester County School District, Chesterfield County Schools, Fort Mill School District and York School District 1 also announced it will be closing its doors Monday.
The Lancaster County School District is also closed Monday after initially announcing they would be on a half-day schedule.
