From ASMS President Dr. Larry Turner:

ASMS Community Members,
As you are probably aware, Tropical Storm Isaac is churning across the Caribbean Sea at this time. According to the National Weather Service, Isaac will become a hurricane and enter the Gulf of Mexico sometime Sunday morning. Current tracking models project Isaac will make final landfall somewhere between Apalachicola, Florida westward to the Louisiana coastline. Keep in mind that these projections are certainly subject to change between now and next week when the storm could even possibly reach our area.
Particularly, we wanted students and parents to know that we at ASMS are keeping a watchful eye on the storm and will be consulting with weather experts including the National Weather Service. We will not be able to make a definite decision about possibly closing our campus and sending everyone home until later in the weekend. Obviously, we will always lean toward making the maximum “safe” decision with the best information that we have available.
One suggestion is that if you are planning to go home this weekend, before returning on Sunday afternoon, check the ASMS website, Facebook, etc. or call the school (251-441-2100), to check on any decision made up to that point.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and expect updates as more information comes available to us.
Larry V. Turner, Ed.D
