Covid, weather, maybe even an electrical or water issue are at the top of the list for reasons schools close for a day. Not commonly on that list - bees.
The Southern Hancock Schools announced that Brandywine Elementary would be closed today after a large beehive was discovered. The bees have been contained and aren't considered to be a threat to the public but the school system played it safe by closing the elementary for today, May 26.
The rest of the Southern Hancock is open Wednesday.
