This is Barry Carroll, superintendent of the Limestone County Schools. Although we continue to have issues related to the tornado damage, the Limestone County Schools will re-open on Thursday, May 5. We understand that some families, especially those in the East Limestone, Creekside and Tanner communities still face adverse conditions and we will work with you in every way possible to assist you with your needs.
We still do not have power at Creekside Elementary School. Additionally, we have been informed that Nick Davis Road, Capshaw Road and Sanderson Road may be closed tomorrow for utility repairs, therefore, we may not be able to open Creekside Elementary tomorrow. Parents of the students who attend Creekside will be contact by 7:00 p.m. tonight with an update on the status of Creekside.
We also have issues with buses being able to access areas in the East, Creekside and Tanner communities. If our bus drivers cannot drive on roads on their normal routes, they will be instructed to skip those areas and parents will have to bring their children to school.
Again we want to Thank the many people who have reached out to the families in need in our community. Although our hearts have been broken, we must come together and move our schools and communities forward in a positive, productive manner. As our motto states, “We are a school system, not a system of schools; we are a TEAM, we are a family.” The Limestone County family has certainly come together in this crisis and we will continue to do so in the days and weeks to come.
Thank you for your patience and assistance during these difficult times. We ask that you continue to be patient with us as we return to our schools tomorrow. Please continue to pray for those who have been impacted by the storms and for those who continue to work hard to restore utilities to our homes, schools and communities.
