Due to the forecasted extreme cold weather conditions all Isle of Wight County Schools and employees will be on a 2-hour delay tomorrow, Tuesday, January 7, 2014. This 2-hour delay will allow time for our Facilities and Transportation departments to check our buildings' heating systems and assess road conditions to determine the best plan for school operations. All outdoor activities are also cancelled for tomorrow.
The safety of our students and staff is always a top priority when making decisions regarding school cancellations and closings. Our leadership team will continue to monitor reports received from the National Weather Service as well as the Isle of Wight County Emergency Management team to determine whether any further delays or closings will be necessary. Please stay tuned to your local news channels, our division website and our Connect 5 messaging system for the most updated information.
In the meantime, parents are asked to dress children in warm layers with coats, hats and gloves in preparation for the colder temperatures ahead.
