****UPDATE****

Brunswick County Schools will resume normal schedules on Monday, September 9th, 2019 at all campuses. 

Our schools suffered minimal damage from Hurricane Dorian, all things considered, and will open our doors to students to pick up where we started.  A huge THANK YOU to the dedicated staff, custodial and operations, who are making sure the schools are ready to go for all students and staff.  We are truly grateful for what you do to make sure all campuses have the safest learning environment possible.  You ROCK! 

 

Emergency shelter locations are being sanitized as well from top to bottom.   Thank you to all teams, from custodial to operations and child nutrition, who worked during the hurricane in the shelters.  THANK YOU!  And thank you to our community partners for helping keep everyone safe before, during and after the storm.  The community is strong.  Together, we will get through anything!

See you on Monday, BCS Family!
