Hurricane Florence Updates: Wednesday, September 12, 12 p.m.

Hurricane Florence Update graphicAs of 11 a.m. Wednesday, schools will remain open for Thursday and Friday. We continue to monitor Hurricane Florence, and we are receiving regular briefings from Bulloch County EMA and the National Hurricance Center at 5 a.m., 11 a.m., and 5 p.m., daily.  With Hurricane Florence's current track, Bulloch EMA is advising that rain and wind will arrive in our area early Saturday morning and remain through the weekend. 

 

We will begin to see winds pick up, midday Thursday,  and we may experience an increase in traffic as people leave South Carolina.  We have been advised that these will not be at a level to warrant closing schools at this time.

 

We are actively working our weather safety plan. We are checking our campuses for any items that need to be moved inside or secured, and our school food services personnel have a plan in place to preserve our food storage should our schools lose power over the weekend. 

 

Again, it is always wise to plan early to ensure your family has the supplies needed in the event of sustained power outages.  Visit www.Ready.gov for ways to prepare your family for severe weather and emergencies.  Also monitor updates on the web and social media from Bulloch County EMA  for local public safety updates and Bulloch Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) for local and area response needs and volunteer opportunities.

 

Bulloch County Schools will continue to communicate information about school operations via our website, social media, media, local public safety partners, and our One Call Now email and telephone messaging system.
