Schools Announce Hurricane Makeup Days, Reopening

Lenoir County school officials have announced two makeup days because of Hurricane Irene.

School will be held on Saturday, September 10 and Wednesday, November 23. Both will be "early out" days.

Meanwhile, Tyrrell County has announced school will resume there on Friday, September 9. County officials say students should be ready for buses at the normal times. There was extensive damage to five Tyrrell County schools during Hurricane Irene.

Below is the information on the Lenoir County Schools website:

"As you are aware, we have missed four school days due to Hurricane Irene. Rochelle Middle School has missed a total of six days. In a conference call with Governor Perdue and other state officials, hurricane affected districts were asked to make up days when there were opportunities in the calendar to do so. Therefore, we will make up two of the missed days on Saturday, September 10th and Wednesday, November 23rd. Both days will run on an early out schedule. We will ask the State to waive the remaining days missed due to the hurricane. I understand that neither of these days are convenient for many of you, however, I ask that everyone work together to make these days as productive as possible."
