With high winds predicted for tonight and the potential for falling trees and limbs, Wilkes County Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay for students tomorrow, Friday, October 12th. This delay will allow buses and student drivers to travel in daylight and hopefully avoid any hazards which may be in our highways. As a reminder, buses do not leave schools before 7:45 on 2-hour delay days. Stay safe!
