Franklin, Montgomery, Craig, Floyd Co. Public Schools to release students early

School Bus Sign

(WSLS 10) – Administrators at Franklin, Montgomery, Craig and Floyd County Public Schools were forced to change their dismissal times for students on Tuesday, September 29 due to rain and flooding.

Floyd County administrators held students an hour after school was over to ensure flood waters had come down enough for roads to be passable. Any students brought back to the school due to impassable roads would be fed and parents would be notified of further actions.

According to Donna Crawford with Franklin County, they will be dismissing their schools early starting at 12:45 p.m.

Montgomery County Public Schools said middle and high schools will release students at 11:45 a.m. Elementary schools will dismiss at 12:45 p.m.

Craig County Public Schools said all schools would release at 2:15 p.m., which administrators said was the earliest buses could be available to transport students.

The decision to release early was made due to the sudden change in flooding forecast.

MCPS says they’re working diligently with emergency management and local law enforcement to ensure all students are returned home safely.

All after school activities in Montgomery County are canceled. School-based child care center and Adventure Club will not open Tuesday afternoon.
