The Bryan County School system prides itself in making the safety of its students and staff a top priority. Considering the effects of Hurricane Matthew in October and the recent devastation as a result of Hurricane Harvey, we want to be extremely cautious as we make decisions that impact the lives of our 1,200+ employees and 9,000+ students.
The volume of traffic traveling I-95 and I-16 continues to grow significantly due to evacuations from Florida. This causes us concern for our Bryan County families as they make preparations for Hurricane Irma. After discussion with local and state emergency management services and considering today’s projected path and the potential threat caused by Hurricane Irma, Bryan County Schools will be closed to all students and staff on Friday, September 8th, Monday, September 11th, and Tuesday September 12th. Most extracurricular activities scheduled for Friday have been moved to tonight or have been cancelled.
Due to the unpredictability of the storm’s path and impact, please continue to check the Bryan County Schools’ website and Facebook page, along with local news media outlets, for further updates on school closures.
