Stay Alert to Weather Reports Today

The following message was sent to the campus community on Friday afternoon, April 19 at 3:59 pm.


Due to today’s unstable weather conditions, the University recommends that students, faculty and staff stay informed on weather reports today and tonight. Such weather information is readily available on local TV stations, local radio and various websites for those outlets and national weather services.

Currently, a tornado watch is in effect in Forsyth County and nearby counties.  The National Weather Service states that a watch means that atmospheric conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
