Important Information: Inclement Weather and Potential School Closings for Friday, September 2nd
Camden County School officials are partnering with Camden County Emergency Management and the National Weather Service (NWS) to determine potential school closures for Friday, September 2nd in response to the approach of Tropical Storm Hermine. Tropical Storm Hermine is currently in the Gulf of Mexico and weather models indicate a strong possibility that northeast Florida and southeast Georgia may experience heavy rain, increased winds and potential isolated flooding in the early morning hours of Friday, September 2nd. While the NWS weather models are a good predictor of a storm’s path, the course of the tropical storm and the strength of the storm cannot be accurately predicted until the storm is closer to landfall on the gulf coast of Florida.
The decision to alter the normal school schedule is very complex and requires weighing multiple variables to make the most prudent and informed decision. We recognize that any decision will have a significant impact on staff, students, and families. In an effort to make the best possible decision with the most current information, Camden County School officials will continue to actively monitor the weather and will notify stakeholders of plans for Friday by noon on Thursday, September 1st if cancelling school for Friday becomes necessary.
Information about school closings will be conveyed to the public in four ways. All official announcements will be made on local radio station KBAY 106.3, through the SchoolWay mobile app, on the Camden County Schools website and via the Camden County Schools Facebook page.
