All schools will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11, due to the Governor’s mandatory evacuation of residents who live in Zone A, which includes several flood-prone neighborhoods in Newport News. The evacuation goes into effect at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Closing schools will give our families and employees in Zone A the opportunity to ensure their safety and evacuate their homes.
All 12-month employees, custodial staff and plant services staff are asked to report on time on Tuesday to prepare for the impending weather. Liberal leave will be provided to employees in these groups who live in areas designated as Zone A; contact your supervisor for liberal leave.
School officials will continue to monitor weather conditions and will keep families and employees informed throughout the week.
