Hamilton County Schools will be closed tomorrow due to forecast rain to last through the evening and freezing conditions to follow after 2 a.m. in the higher elevations in the county. Freezing conditions are expected to last until the afternoon in the higher elevations impacting travel in the area. Athletic events will be rescheduled and practices canceled Thursday evening. School-aged childcare will be open from 8 6 p.m. in seven locations in the community to assist parents. The locations open will be Battle Academy, East Ridge Elementary, Red Bank Elementary, Harrison Elementary, Middle Valley Elementary, Wolftever Creek Elementary and East Brainerd Elementary. Once again those locations will be open from 8 to 6 tomorrow. Twelve-month employees report as scheduled but use caution, understanding travel terrain and conditions in your area. The district will take the opportunity to perform extra cleaning and sanitizing for flu and illness prevention in light of flu outbreaks in surrounding communities. Hamilton County has had strong attendance numbers this month, but this will be a good opportunity to take extra precaution during the flu season.

East Ridge Elementary is a Leader in Me School. We have over 25 languages spoken at ERES. We celebrate our diversity. We believe that change starts with me, that educators empower students to lead their own learning, that everyone has genius, that we need to develop the whole person, and that everyone can be a leader. It is important to us that our students know they are not only our future leaders – they are today’s leaders. We are proud Pioneers at the school where learners and leaders shine.
