**Latest News**    

On behalf of the Superintendent, please see the following statement:

Due to forecasted icy road conditions, all CCSD schools and offices will operate on a 2-hour delay Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018. Buses will pick up 2 hours late; school will end on time. We will closely monitor conditions overnight to determine if further action is needed.  Updates will be shared on our website and social media, and by email to parents.  How do we decide? Learn more here (https://www.cherokeek12.net/Content2/school-closure-decision-process). #SafeCherokee





Volunteers are welcome for the Christmas Event!  If you would like to be a volunteer please contact the City Clerk to be added to the list!

Just a reminder...
Parking on sidewalks is not allowed. We realize that this time of year means family and friends will be visiting but please pull the vehicles out of the way. This has been becoming a problem and creating safety problems for both drivers as well as those who walk. Children need to be able to safely travel to their bus stops. If this continues, we will be forced to take further action to rectify the problem.  Thank you all for your time and consideration.

Important Information:




****

*NOTICE: City of Nelson's Cherokee County Residents will pay their 2017 City Property Taxes when paying their Cherokee County Property Tax Bill to Cherokee County. This is due to a consolidation agreement between Cherokee County and the City of Nelson.  By doing so it reduces the paperwork, saves on cost and provides easier processing.

What You Can do Before Severe Weather Strikes

5. Have a NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards receiver unit with a warning alarm tone and battery back-up to receive warning bulletins. 

6. National Weather Service (NWS) watches and warnings are also available on the Internet. Select your local NWS office at: http://www.weather.gov/organization.php …or go to the to the NWS Home Page at http://www.nws.noaa.gov 

7. Listen to commercial radio or television/cable TV for weather information. 

8. Check the weather forecast before leaving for extended periods outdoors. Watch for signs of approaching storms.
