Friday will be a remote learning day for Chatham County Schools students and staff because of the risk of severe weather from Hurricane Ian.
If the power goes out, it will be an asynchronous learning day. All school campuses and district offices will be closed.
In addition, all school-related activities for Friday evening and Saturday have been canceled to ensure the safety of students and staff.
Chatham County Schools also announced they will be canceling the administration of the SAT at Northwood and Jordan Matthews High School due to inclement weather. The test was set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 1. Make-up dates will be determined at a later date.
Hurricane Ian is anticipated to hit North Carolina on Friday. Governor Roy Cooper has declared a state of emergency. The declaration authorizes the activation of the National Guard, protects consumers from price gouging and should help with the transportation of fuel and other supplies.
The storm is expected to bring strong winds and heavy rain to North Carolina late this week, which could mean flash flooding, power outages and tornadoes.
