Local schools close ahead of Hurricane Florence

9/12/18 UPDATE: All WJCC schools will reopen to students and staff on Thursday, September 13. A statement from the school system stated, in part: "Based on significant changes to Hurricane Florence’s path, all Williamsburg-James City County Schools and offices will return to normal operations Thursday, September 13. According to weather reports, the storm continues to move southward, reducing the risk of significant impacts to our area. Based on that change, City and County leaders tell us that school buildings will not be needed as shelters and may once again be used for instruction."  WJCC City offices will also return to normal operations Thursday.
