Burke County School System
School Closure due to Expected Weather Conditions
Because of expected inclement weather caused by Hurricane Michael, the Burke County Public School System will be closed Thursday, October 11, 2018.
In making this decision, consideration was given to the threat of high winds and excessive rain which will create unsafe travel conditions for school buses, parents, students and staff in the early morning hours.
Please be aware of the following information:
- All after school activities will end today at 5:00 p.m.
- All school activities and programs are canceled for Thursday, October 11, 2018.
- All Burke County School District employees, including 12 month personnel, should NOT
report to work Thursday, October 11, 2018.
We anticipate reopening Friday, October 12, 2018, on a normal school schedule. We encourage our public to visit our website, social media channels, BC APP and local media outlets for updates.
