A winter storm is headed our way

Here’s what we know so far. A winter storm moved through North Carolina on Thursday and brought snow across the state. The central portion of the state saw more than 2 inches in some areas, while the mountains received more than 5 inches of snow in some locations  We’re tracking the storm and its impact on our school’s operating schedules.  So far, more than 150 schools have delayed or closed. We’ll continue to keep you posted as we get new information.
