As of this update, these are the current school related closings or schedule adjustments in North Carolina. We will continue monitoring closing announcements, and posting them to this website throughout the next day or so.
Although Ernesto is currently a tropical storm, forecasters believe that it will strengthen to Hurricane force prior to coming ashore in North Carolina. We will be posting any closing we locate in the North Carolina / South Carolina as soon as possible tonight. We apologize for the delay in postings in the past day or so -- we have had intermittent issues that we are working to iron out in v0.1 of our Education Disaster Information System.
