Based on the latest information from the National Weather Service and Wilson County Emergency Management, schools and offices will be closed Fri., Sept. 6 for all students and staff across the district, including annexes and Central Office.
We are SO GRATEFUL to Wilson County Emergency Management, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, city and county crews, NCDOT, the Red Cross, our WCS Maintenance Department, news outlets and countless others who serve us selflessly during emergencies and inclement weather! Shout Out! to Superintendent Dr. Mills who always errs on the side of caution and seeks advisement from weather experts to keep us safe during inclement weather. He is responsible for the safety and the education of more than 11,000 students and 2,000 staff members - so he does not take the decision to close schools lightly.
WCS officials are monitoring the hurricane based on information from the National Weather Service and Wilson County Emergency Management. If there is a change in the school schedule for Thursday, an announcement will be made later today (Wed., Sept. 4).
For parents and students of Fike High School interested in learning about potential career options (at least one parent should attend with their student).
