A message from Superintendent Williams regarding Hurricane Irma:

 

I have been, and will continue to be, participating in daily webinars from the National Weather Service as we monitor the progress of Hurricane Irma.  Over the weekend, 4 additional webinars will be held.  If the westerly track for Irma continues, it is predicted that we will see weather in our area deteriorating Monday afternoon and continuing through Tuesday.  My concerns center around the increasing possibility for tornadoes and the high winds that are accompanying Irma.  The increasing wind shears will be problematic even if Irma is downgraded to Tropical Storm status by the time it reaches our area.  Predictions from the last webinar show the potential for wind bands in our area beginning Monday evening to be over 50 MPH. Such wind gusts make school bus travel extremely unsafe.  No decision on altering the school day will be made until Sunday evening.  As always, the safety of students, faculty and staff will be the deciding factor in any decision made.  At this present time, if the forecast holds, plan on a normal school day for Monday.  However, keep in mind that changes in the weather may necessitate a need to alter the school day and an early release could occur.  Tuesday seems to be the most likely day that may call for an altered schedule.  Once again, a decision won’t be reached until Sunday evening after the National Weather Service webinars.  Once a decision is made, you will be notified via our all call system, on our Facebook page and on our webpage.  Thank you for your understanding and patience as we make these tough decisions.
