No school Friday for most students

Sampson County Schools will be remote


Friday will not be a traditional school day for students in Harnett, Johnston and Sampson counties. Harnett and Johnston county students get the day off. Sampson County learners will go remote.

“Due to forecasted winter weather, all JCPS schools and offices will be closed for students and staff on Friday,” said Johnston County Public Schools Executive Director of Communication Caitlin Furr. “Additionally, any events scheduled for after school on Friday or scheduled over the weekend are canceled.”

Teachers are encouraged to check their emails for more information.

In Harnett County Schools, Friday is a teacher work day, giving students the chance to enjoy a “snow day” without needing to make it up.

“HCS staff members should consult with their principal or supervisor regarding work status due to the potential of inclement weather” Friday, said HCS Public Information Officer Natalie Ferrell.

All Sampson County Schools will transition to a remote learning day for students and staff on Friday, according to SCS Director of Communications Valerie Newton.

When classes resume, the following Harnett County schools are on remote learning after a spike in COVID-19 cases:

  • Dunn Middle School (classes set to resume in-person on Tuesday)
  • Erwin Elementary at Gentry (classes set to resume in-person on Tuesday)
  • Overhills High School (classes set to resume in-person on Tuesday)
