Schools closed for students and staff Friday, April 19, 2019
Charlton County Emergency Management and the National Weather Service (NWS) is communicating for residents to prepare for anticipated severe weather which may affect Charlton County around noon tomorrow and continuing throughout the early afternoon. In addition to substantial rainfall caused by these weather conditions, significant winds are also expected in the area. Increased winds bring with them the potential for isolated tornadoes, downed trees, power lines, and power outages in the affected areas.
Charlton County School students are currently in the middle of state mandated testing with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System. Due to the severe weather and the potential for a significant disruption to testing, a decision has been made to cancel school tomorrow, April 19, 2019 for both students and staff.
