— Fort Mill school will be closed Friday, making four weather-related closings in the last two weeks, including three since Tuesday.

Like the district did prior to all the school closings, a voice message was sent earlier Thursday afternoon to announce the decision.

"Hearing the same voice throughout this past week of weather announcements can be a bit redundant and 'get a little old,' so we thought we'd have a little fun with the help of some students' in announcing the school cancellation for Friday, Feb. 14," McKinney wrote in an email Thursday evening.

"Lastly," she wrote, "weather make-up days will be announced at another time. Please know that Spring Break will not be affected. Have an enjoyable extended weekend."

Also, Fort Mill town offices will be closed Friday. Sanitation and recycling routes are cancelled for Friday as well and will resume their normal schedules next Friday.

Residents can use the York County Recycling Centers in Fort Mill located on Hwy. 160 East, across from the Complex on the Greenway, and on Hwy. 160 West near Baxter Village.

Winter Storm Pax moved in Wednesday and dumped several inches of snow on he area. By morning, with temperatures in the mid 20s, local roads were covered with a layer of slick ice. A freezing rain in early morning then turned to snow Thursday and several more inches fell through mid afternoon. Some melting occurred in late afternoon and the forecast calls for another plunge below freezing overnight, resulting in slick roads again by morning.
