RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Heavy rain that brought flooding to central North Carolina altered school schedules on Thursday and Friday.
Johnston County said Thursday afternoon that public schools — including early college and CTLA — would not hold in-person classes Friday. No curbside food services will be provided, the school system said.
“This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution as JCPS staff and Johnston County Emergency Services have continued to collaborate throughout this weather event. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” the district said.
Harnett County and Wayne County said Thursday afternoon that they would move to remote learning for Friday.
Numerous school districts in the area either moved instruction online Thursday or dismissed classes early. Flash flood warnings have been in effect since as long as Wednesday evening in some areas, resulting in Thursday being a CBS 17 Storm Team Alert Day.
Elsewhere in the state, 143 people needed to be rescued from a charter school in Charlotte.
