News & Announcements

Changing Weather may faciliatate faster than normal timeline for dismissals

Forecasts are calling for more saturating rainfall over the next week, with significant amounts falling on Monday and Tuesday.  Swain County Schools’ Administration is in contact with Swain County Emergency Services as well as the Department of Transportation, and in concert with them, are continually monitoring the situation.  Please keep in mind that changes in our weather can occur quickly and many times with no warning. 

We ask that you keep these circumstances in mind as we move forward this week.  Our continuing pledge to our community is to always act with the utmost safety of our students and staff in mind.  As situations arise and change, Swain County Schools may have to dismiss and send students and staff home on a faster timeline than normal, which in turn could mean shorter notification times for our community.  We ask for your understanding and patience as we move forward this week.
