In partnership with the Glynn County Emergency Management Agency and National Weather Service in Jacksonville, Glynn County Schools officials are closely monitoring Hurricane Ian and its projected path up the western coast of Florida. With the latest information provided by our local and regional weather experts, forecasts predict the storm could have significant local impacts, such as hurricane-force winds and storm surge, as early as Wednesday night and possibly lasting through Friday.
However, as we have seen in the past, weather is unpredictable and ever-changing. In response to this weather event, we have activated our weather safety plan and are making the appropriate preparations for our schools as the storm track becomes more certain. If current forecasts hold, a decision regarding school closures will be made and announced on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
We know the decision whether to close our schools has a huge impact on the plans and lives of our students and employees, as well as their families, and it is important to us to give you as much information as possible so you can plan accordingly.
In any case, official notifications will be announced via One Call, our automated phone/email alert system, on the district’s website, through our media partners, and on our Facebook page.
