Families displaced and living in a temporary location due to Hurricane Florence are being notified that when school resumes, their children have the right to attend the school they attended prior to the storm, or enroll in the local school based on where they are currently living.
Transportation will be provided if needed.
In the next few days, school personnel will begin contacting families to determine if they have had to relocate. This information will be used to develop a plan to provide transportation to school even if the child is currently staying outside of his or her home school district.
See the district website to learn more about the McKinney Vento Homeless Act, which provides rights to those who qualify as homeless due to economic hardship and natural disasters such as Hurricane Florence.
For parents who have additional questions, staff from their child’s school will be contacting them.
