Tropical Storm Zeta is forecasted to bring high winds and heavy rain to our area overnight Wednesday and into the early morning hours on Thursday. The potential exists for wind gusts of up to 40 mph in the early morning hours on Thursday, which would make it unsafe to operate large vehicles such as school buses. In addition, the potential for downed powerlines and trees can cause hazardous travel conditions for our students and staff.
Provided it is safe to do so, we will plan to start school at 9:50 AM for all elementary students and 10:10 AM for middle and high school students.
Bus routes will run two hours later than the normal schedule. For example, if your student is normally picked up at 7:00 AM, they would be picked up at 9:00 AM. Dismissal times and afternoon bus routes will proceed as normal.
The PSAT scheduled for tomorrow at JHS will be postponed and a makeup date will be communicated in the coming days.
As always, the safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. We encourage everyone to be weather aware this evening and tomorrow morning. If circumstances change or conditions worsen, we will provide updates through Infinite Campus Messenger, Local media, Social Media, and the BCSS webpage.
