October9-13 is National School Lunch Week; the theme is "Level Up with School Lunch." Featured items will include: Minecraft Meatball Sub, FryGuy Fries, Guaco Walking Taco, Pac-Man Pizza, Donkey Kong Bananas, Yeti in my Spaghetti, Kirby Cheeseburger, and Princess Peach.
To help ensure the national alert and warning system is ready to provide timely, accurate information during the next disaster, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct a nationwide test at approximately 2:20 PM on Wednesday, October 4. This 1-minute test alert sent to TVs, radios and smartphones is similar to the weekly or monthly testing that happens on a local and regional level. The message that appears on phones will read: “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” No action is required by the public. This alert is simply a test of a robust readiness system should a nationwide alert be necessary in the future. All Preston County Schools have been advised of this test and are notifying students and staff in advance of the test this afternoon.
