WEATHER UPDATE: HCPS leaders are closely monitoring the weather for Tuesday, January 9.

All schools will be open as scheduled tomorrow. After-school activities and sports will also continue as scheduled.

Principals will monitor the weather at their individual school sites for any possible changes to dismissal procedures, as the weather in one part of the county can be very different from other areas.

Parents of walkers and bike riders should consider using carline to pick up their children tomorrow.

Districts north of Hillsborough are in an enhanced risk of severe weather and so they may have other concerns to consider.

We will continue to collaborate with county officials and if there are any updates, we will notify you.

On the night of December 31, 1862, enslaved and free African Americans gathered, many in secret, to ring in the new year and await news that the Emancipation Proclamation had taken effect. Just a few months earlier, on September 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the executive order that declared enslaved people in the rebelling Confederate States legally free. However, the decree would not take effect until the clock struck midnight at the start of the new year. The occasion, known as Watch Night or β€œFreedom's Eve,” marks when African Americans across the country watched and waited for the news of freedom. Today, Watch Night is an annual New Year’s Eve tradition that includes the memory of slavery and freedom, reflections on faith, and celebration of community and strength. 🌐 Visit www.naacphillsborough.org to Join/ Volunteer/ Donate ✨ "Follow" , by clicking the blue thumbs upπŸ‘πŸΎ on FB.

Kwanzaa celebrates the seven principles of Nguzo Saba (developed in 1965, a year before Kwanzaa). These seven principles are all Swahili words, and together comprise the Kawaida or "common" philosophy, a synthesis of nationalist, pan-Africanist values.
