3:15 p.m. Update: 

Dear Families, Faculty, and Staff,

The tornado warning for our county has expired. Students and staff are safe and are no longer sheltering in place. As we shared in our most recent update, transportation service will be impacted at all schools.

Elementary schools are preparing for dismissal. Middle and high schools will release on time, with delays for those students utilizing bus transportation. Those students will remain supervised inside our schools until buses arrive. Parental pickup may proceed as normal. We ask for your patience as administrators coordinate the safe dismissal of our students.

Please note that all after-school and evening activities are canceled for today.

We appreciate our patience, understanding, and support as we work to keep our students and staff safe.

Thank you.
