Bulloch Schools to Shutter Thurs. & Fri. in Anticipation of Hurricane Ian

Bulloch County Schools and all of its district offices will be closed on Thursday and Friday, September 29-30, for all students and employees. All after-school activities, sports practices and meetings are also canceled. The school district has begun informing student families and employees through its mass communication system, websites and social media.

This decision is based on the most recent official weather forecasts we have from the National Weather Service that show the possibility of severe weather in our area beginning as early as 8 a.m., Thursday morning. This forecast includes possible wind gusts of over 35 miles per hour which are out of the safe zone for school buses, student drivers and families to travel. The safety of employees and children is the most important consideration during this time.

As the school district reopens on Monday, the amount of rain Bulloch County receives could affect school bus route stops. The school district has already made a list of potential alternate bus stops for roads where flooding or road closures typically occur due to heavy rain or standing water. Remain alert. Bulloch County Schools will notify families if they need to activate any of these alternate stops.
