HAMLET — Announced Monday afternoon by Richmond County Schools public information officer Briana Goins, RCS will operate on a two-hour delay schedule as the effects of Hurricane Irma move into the region overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.
Superintendent Dr. Cindy Goodman, whose top priority is student and faculty safety, made the decision to operate on a delay schedule following the threat of high winds and heavy rains.
By allowing a later start to the school day, Goodman says, “this will provide better visibility for our (bus) drivers as they run their routes (Tuesday) morning.”
Students across the county are expected to be at bus stops and classrooms two hour later than they normally would. Goodman noted that breakfast will be served like a regular-scheduled day, and encourages, “everyone to be safe.”
