McDowell County Schools will operate on a two-hour delay today, Monday, April 16. This delay is due to widespread power outages in the northern part of the county and a large utility water outage in many southern portions of McDowell. This delay will allow us time to make sure all our school facilities are fully operational before students arrive on campus.
Staff members unaffected by the weather or utility issues are asked to report at regular time.
McDowell County Schools is changing from the current two hour delay to a three hour delay at this time. Power and water issues are still affecting two campuses, as well as lots of households around the county. North Cove Elementary and Glenwood Elementary are the areas most affected. We will continue to monitor the situation and inform you of any further changes.
Thank you for your patience.
