Bulloch Co. Schools Open & On Schedule

Written by  Buddy Horne & BCS reports Tuesday, 07 January 2014 09:50

  As cold weather affects the area for the next two days, Superintendent Charles Wilson is in close contact with the Bulloch County Emergency Management Agency, school principals, and the school district’s directors of transportation and maintenance to help ensure student safety and warm buses and buildings.

 

  Monday Wilson said “As a result of information from Bulloch County EMA, we do not foresee the need to cancel school.  We are taking precautions and realize that things will be moving more slowly than usual."

 

  According to weather predictions, no significant ice accumulation is anticipated.  Winds are expected to dry the rain that fell earlier; however, with wind there is the possibility of trees or power lines being blown down.  County road crews will alert the school system of any affected areas.

 

  Part of the school district’s plan is for Bulloch County Schools’ bus mechanics and drivers to report to work earlier today and tomorrow to ensure buses are cranked and warm before they begin morning routes. Also, because parents will be keeping their children inside their homes and cars instead of having them stand at the bus stop, drivers will wait on students to board. This will result in some buses delays, so schools will work with the students. Schools will keep their activities inside over the next few days.

 

  Bulloch County Schools will deliver updates of any information about school closings to all Statesboro365.com, Statesboro radio stations, Savannah area television stations, the Bulloch County Schools Website, and the district’s and schools’ social media sites.
