There will be no school for students on Friday, September 8, "to allow our families time to make preparations for potentially dangerous conditions associated with Hurricane Irma as it moves up the coast," says an official statement from Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools.
"Essential District staff will report to work on Friday as notified by their Supervisor."
School will also be cancelled on Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12. The return to school date is subject to change, the statement says. Official return to school notices will be communicated through the call notification system, district website, and social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.
