Watauga County Schools and Ashe County Schools in North Carolina, as well as Johnson County Schools in Tennessee will be on two-hour delays Tuesday, December 18. There will be no bus service on icy roads.  The decision in Watauga County was made just before three p.m. this afternoon. According to associate superintendent Mark Hurst, a group of individuals go out and check roads during inclement weather and report back to administrators. Hurst says Watauga does not make the decision to cancel school lightly. Each day missed has to be made up at the end of the school year. With two school days already cancelled this year, school is tentatively scheduled to have its last day in Watauga on May 22. That could change with more inclement weather. The state requires school to be in session for at least 180 days. Last year, Watauga missed six school days due to inclement weather.
