Hurricane Irma

Children and teenagers can become anxious when their routines are disrupted by natural disasters such as a hurricane. Parents should try to address those fears in a factual, reassuring manner.  If you remain calm, your children will often follow your behavior.

RB Stewart MS is a hurricane shelter.  Please evacuate if you are in Zone A or need a sturdy structure.
