While some schools are now back in session, many others are still a work in progress. Right now, its only a guess for school officials on when every school will be back in session. Crews continue to work to try to eliminate the mold and repair the damages from Hurricane Florence.

“The scope of work is very large and everything is not going to be perfect on every school after the first try,” Craven County Schools Superintendent Meghan Doyle said. “So we feel like we will have a significant amount more schools that are going to open hopefully by the beginning of next week and we hope to have all of them open very very quickly soon after that.”

With the effects of Hurricane Michael likely to sweep across the Carolinas, Gaston County Schools announced there will be no school Thursday.

The closure extends to all activities, including parent conferences and sports, the school system announced.

The storm made landfall in Florida on Wednesday with winds exceeding 150 mph. National Weather Service meteorologist Andrew Kimball said Gaston County could get 4-6 inches of rain from the storm.
