Weather Warning - February 16, 2021

Swain County Schools will issue a WEATHER WARNING when weather conditions are or will be present that have the potential for delays or cancellation of school. WEATHER WARNINGS will be issued in advance so that our community can be prepared IF school is delayed or cancelled. The Warning will also alert our community to the possibility of weather situations during travel as well as for students who wait on buses. Please note that the WARNING does not mean schools will be delayed or cancelled, only that the possibility exists. Check all Maroon Devil media outlets for updates, delays or cancellations.

Optional Teacher Workday, Feb 2

Due to deteriorating road conditions, Tuesday, February 2, there will be no school for students and it will be an optional teacher workday for staff.

Change to a Remote Learning Day - Feb 1

Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather today, Swain County Schools will have a remote learning day on Feb. 1. This is not a teacher workday. All instruction will be delivered virtually. It is our hope to bring all schedule A students to the buildings on Tuesday, Feb. 2

Two Hour Delay - 2/1/21

Swain County Schools will implement a two hour delay on Monday February 1. The purpose is to allow for further observation of the weather and to allow drivers better vision. Additional schedule changes for the day are possible pending deteriorating weather.

Continue Plan C through January 29

To further insure that all schools and buses will be appropriately staffed, Swain County Schools will continue Plan C-Remote Instruction for the week of January 25 - 29. Thank you for supporting our staff and students as we work together to safely provide the best instruction possible in challenging times.

Important Announcement - Schools move to Plan C 1/13/21

Like many in our community, we are concerned with the overall rise in COVID cases in our county. For the overall safety and well being of our faculty, staff and students, as well as our community as a whole, we will be halting face to face instruction and going to Plan C, which is Remote Instruction for ALL students, beginning Thursday, January 14th until Monday, January 25th. Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 12th and Wednesday, January 13th will be Teacher Workdays.

We apologize for the difficulties this causes our Swain Family, but we feel it is a necessary decision for the overall well being of our school community.
