Mount Airy City Schools will dismiss at 12:30 pm, providing everyone time to get home safely before winds hit our area. Students will eat lunch prior to dismissal. Jones and Mount Airy Middle School will dismiss at 12:15 pm while Tharrington Primary and Mount Airy High School will dismissal at 12:30 pm. This staggered dismissal is used daily as our buses are shared between schools.
We encourage everyone to be prepared for the storm, flooding, and possible power outages. We will communicate via SchoolMessenger (calls and texts), our social media outlets, TV, radio, and our website. Charge any battery backups you have so you will have a working cell phone, should power be out for an extended period of time.
