All Bryan County schools will remain open Friday, but school officials will monitor the path of Hurricane Florence to see if it will affect Monday's school day.

Superintendent Paul Brooksher said "Bryan County School District officials continue to work directly with Bryan County Emergency Services to monitor Hurricane Florence. Based on the most recent projections and predictive models, Bryan County Schools will be open on Friday, September 14th. The safety of our students and staff continues to be our highest priority as we make decisions regarding the weather.  We will continue monitoring the storm through the weekend and notify all parties on Sunday if there is a need to modify the school day on Monday, September 17th.  We hope all of you have a safe weekend and we appreciate your continued support."

Chatham County schools will be closed Friday.
