Jan. 8 will be a remote learning day for all ABSS students pre-K through 12th grade due to the potential for inclement weather in the forecast.

Grab and go meals and bus stop meals will not operate.

Athletics and after school activities are canceled.

Teachers may choose to work remotely. All classified staff who have the ability to work remotely from home may do so with the approval of the school principal or their direct supervisor. Classified staff who are not able to work remotely should work with their supervisor.

Davie County Schools

Due to the threat of inclement weather, Davie County Schools will operate on a remote learning day for all students on Friday, January 8. We have been monitoring the forecast and understand that getting this information as far in advance as possible is ideal for planning. We will continue to try to make these calls the day/night before whenever possible.

Our plan remains to have “snow days” when we have true snowy days. We feel strongly about the
importance of children enjoying that time playing in the snow. However, this week we must balance the importance of end of semester testing and protect students’ exam schedules at the high school level.

Certified staff should work remotely on a regular schedule or report to work at your discretion.

Please contact your supervisor to make arrangements.

Classified staff may report to work or work with your supervisor regarding leave or make up time.

We hope everyone remains safe and please use caution if travel is necessary. Thank you and have a
great afternoon
