Prevailing icy road conditions were cited Friday morning as several northern Utah schools started classes late.

Davis School District spokesman Christopher Williams said all schools in his district were starting two hours later than usual — and the district's afternoon kindergarten classes were cancelled.

Evening activities were to take place as scheduled.

Weber School District also began Friday by delaying the start of classes two hours; Davis also cancelled afternoon kindergarten classes due to icy roads. Similar weather-related late starts were announced by Legacy Preparatory Academy and the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind. Other schools were opening on time.
