East Tennessee State University will start on a two-hour delay this morning, while several other local school systems closed because of icy roads from overnight snow and freezing rain.
Washington County, Johnson City, Carter County, Elizabethton, Sullivan County, Johnson County and Unicoi County schools will be closed. Providence Academy in Johnson City also shut down for the day.
ETSU classes and offices will open at 10 a.m.
Johnson City initially had announced a two-hour delay but later revised the schedule to closure.
