The district announced Sunday evening that it will cancel classes for students and close offices on Monday. Students and staff were set to return to school on Monday from the winter break. 

Cherokee County and the cities of CantonHolly Springs and Woodstock government offices will delay opening until 10 a.m. Monday.  

A winter weather advisory remains in effect until noon Monday for Holly Springs and Cherokee County, according to the National Weather Service. Rain, sleet and snow are expected to change over to all snow after 4 a.m. Monday.
