UPDATE 9/17/2018 6:34 PM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), has delayed the nationwide test of the nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) to the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. FEMA will conduct an emergency test of IPAWS with a nationwide test text message being sent to all mobile phones at 2:18 p.m. and a radio and television alert being sent out at 2:20 p.m.

Remember, this is only a test of the system. In an actual national emergency, the message would include response instructions. We are sharing links to the FEMA IPAWS Fact Sheet flyer in English and Spanish.

Home of the Dolphins and a 2002 Georgia School of Excellence because of their exemplar history of academics, extracurricular programs and community involvement, Crooked River Elementary School (CRES) first opened its doors to students on August 29, 1986.  Named for its proximity to the Crooked River on the northern border of St. Marys, CRES provides a  motivating learning environment for Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade with an average enrollment of 585 students.  Serving students from the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base and surrounding area, the CRES faculty is composed of approximately 42 certified professionals, 12 paraprofessionals, 3 clerical employees and a registered nurse.

If it is to be, it is up to me. If I believe, I can achieve.
