The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for our area starting at 7 PM tonight and ending tomorrow morning. We will be watching the weather closely to determine if there will be any delay or closing for tomorrow. Please watch WRAL (Channel 3 on cable) for any updates.
We are NOT Wake County Schools, so please watch for Southern Wake Academy to appear in the list of closings and/or delays.
DELAY PROCEDURE: If we issue a delay, then the middle school will be on the delay, NOT the high school. High school tests that are scheduled for Wednesday will be given on Thursday; students will be expected to arrive at school on Thursday at their scheduled test time.
The safety of our students, parents, and staff are of the utmost importance to us, so we will be taking this winter storm watch very seriously. Please stay tuned to WRAL throughout the evening and tomorrow morning for updates. Be safe and stay off the roads if we do get ice tonight!
A version of this notice appeared in the SWA News on January 13, 2015.

IMPORTANT Message to parents whose students are taking 3rd period, English II (tenth grade English), there will be a MANDATORY review session from 8:30 to 2:30 on Monday, January 12, 2015. We will break for lunch from 11:30 to 12:00. Students may bring their own food, or please have them bring $2.00 by Wednesday January 7, and we will order Pizza for them.
The EOC is scheduled for Tuesday from 8:30 to 12:30, it is a long and difficult test, so it will probably run longer than 12:30.
Thank you for your help!
