Hurricane Michael Update: Monday, Oct. 8, 12:30 PM
Tattnall County School System is in regular contact with the Tattnall County Emergency Management Agency to actively monitor Hurricane Michael. According to the most recent report from the National Hurricane Center, the hurricane is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico on Monday and possibly affect our area by Wednesday, October 10th with wind and rain. Six to ten inches of rain is being predicted in our area, and this could impact our buses’ ability to safely travel the large number of dirt roads in our county.
Please be alert for weather updates on our website, social media, area media, or our electronic telephone and email messaging system.
Our schools and offices are actively working our weather safety plan. We will check our campuses for any items that need to be moved inside or secured, and our school food services personnel have a plan in place to preserve our food storage should our schools lose power.
It is always wise to plan early to ensure your family’s safety. Visit www.Ready.gov for ways to prepare your family for severe weather and emergencies. Families should especially be prepared with the food and water supplies they need in the event of sustained power outages. The Tattnall EMA Facebook site is also a good local source of information.
