The Bryan County Board of Education held a called work session on Saturday, September 7, 2019, where we discussed Hurricane Dorian and the impact it had on students and staff. As a result of our discussion, the students and staff will not be required to make up missed days caused by the mandatory evacuation order for Hurricane Dorian. The board should be commended for their leadership as they continue to recognize and support their employees and students.
Bryan County Schools will open Monday, September 9, 2019, and we look forward to welcoming back students and staff for a great week of learning. If you evacuated for Hurricane Dorian, we wish you safe travels home.
Bryan County Schools is currently developing calendars for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. We value your input and would appreciate your feedback by completing our school calendar survey. Please click the link below to access and complete the form.

Bryan County Schools will be open tomorrow - Friday, October 12th. We look forward to seeing our students and staff for another great day!
The safety of our students and staff continues to be our highest priority as we make decisions regarding the weather. In our most recent interaction with Bryan County Emergency Services and National Weather Service regarding Hurricane Michael, we learned there is still a possibility of strong winds impacting our area late tonight and all day tomorrow. Considering this most recent update, we do not want to take a risk with student and/or staff safety.
As a result, Bryan County Schools will be closed tomorrow for all students and staff. Also, all extracurricular activities are cancelled for Thursday.
Whenever we make a determination about cancelling school and closing our district, Bryan County School District officials spend hours studying as much quality information as possible prior to making this determination. Particularly in the case of making a future decision based on projections and predictions, it is important that we study as much information as is available to us. It is also important to remember that making decisions based on weather predictions can be a very difficult call. Even though we understand that tomorrow’s weather could turn out very differently than we have been advised at this point, we feel that closing the district tomorrow is in everyone’s best interest.
Also, based on the most current information we have right now regarding Hurricane Michael, we do plan for the district to reopen on Friday. Again, we understand the track of this hurricane could change at any minute and require us to remain closed on Friday. Therefore, it is very important for you to pay attention to our multiple notification systems for any required updates on the circumstances.
We hope all of our students, staff, parents and the entire Bryan County community remain safe as Hurricane Michael passes through our area. Our thoughts go out to the schools, students, staff and parents in the Florida panhandle and south Georgia.
