Chatham County Schools will be closed Tuesday, September 18, 2018, for students with an optional workday for staff beginning at 10 a.m. We had hoped to be able to make a final decision a little earlier, but the list of affected roads has continued to grow.
As you know, there were multiple flooded roads throughout the County today. While there has been some receding, a number of roads have remained flooded or collapsed. Some roads simply will not be accessible. In addition, the North Carolina Department of Transportation, the Chatham County Sheriff's Office and the local emergency management team are monitoring several areas that are close to the flooding and will not be able to make a final assessment until after cresting occurs. This morning certainly underscored the unpredictable nature of weather.
Our Transportation Department is currently working to revise the affected routes and will finalize a plan Tuesday that we anticipate will return us to normal operation on Wednesday. The additional day will also give the local and state authorities opportunity to identify any other impacted routes once most of the cresting occurs.
We appreciate your ongoing support and look forward to our students’ return to school.
