Parents, caretakers, and educators,

Over the weekend, Hurricane Dorian turned towards the Carolinas. We are monitoring this dangerous storm closely, and as you end your holiday weekend, please do the same and prepare.

We hope and pray the storm turns away from us, but because of Hurricane Dorian’s size, many North Carolinians may experience severe weather soon.

The State of North Carolina has a free resource to help you prepare. Please or download the ReadyNC app.

I join the governor and all your leaders in Raleigh in urging everyone to use caution and to prepare now. Please listen for updates from your local leaders.

Thank you, and please stay safe.
