As the city of Amory works to recover from a deadly EF-3 tornado, the Amory School District has announced that classes will resume on Tuesday morning.
This will be the first time classes have taken place since March 24 when the tornado tore through the area, killing 21. The Amory School District released the following statement on Friday:
“We are happy to announce classes for Amory School District will resume on Tuesday, April 11th. However, due to concerns regarding roadside debris and the presence of heavy equipment, we will NOT run buses when schools open Tuesday, April 11th. If students are unable to attend school due to the lack of bus transportation or for any other reason, please contact the Amory High School office through REMIND, SCHOOL STATUS, or EMAIL (email@example.com) as the phones may be tied up. If the absence is unavoidable, students will be allowed to make up work. Additionally, Amory School District will be in session on April 14th, due to the Amory Railroad Festival being postponed. Again, school will be in session April 14th. We will reassess the roads each day and provide an update when buses are safe to resume routes. The safety of ALL of our students is the highest priority for Amory School District.”
