Charlotte County Public Schools will be closed Monday

Tropical Storm Michael will continue to impact the schedule of school and school-related activities in the county Monday.

Charlotte County Public Schools announced on its Facebook page Sunday that schools “will be closed for students and staff on Monday, October 15th due to continued power outages and road closings throughout the county.”

Twelve-month employees were asked to report at 10 a.m. or use liberal leave.

The last three quarters of the Randolph-Henry High School (R-H) varsity football team’s homecoming game had been set for Monday at 6:30 p.m., but the Statesmen and their fans will have to wait a bit longer than that now.

Randolph-Henry Athletics Director Chris Holt said Sunday afternoon that the remainder of the game has been postponed and no reschedule date had been determined at that time.

The R-H homecoming game against visiting Amelia County High School was originally scheduled for Sept. 28 and actually began that evening, but the teams were not able to get far into the game due to lack of functioning lights.

Whenever the game concludes, it is expected to pick up where it left off — at the beginning of the second quarter. The Raiders (6-0) lead 22-0.

Inclement weather stemming from Tropical Storm Michael led to a postponement of Randolph-Henry’s road game this past Friday against Nottoway High School (3-3). That game has been rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 22, at 6 p.m.

This will bookend a weekend with a Friday game in which the Statesmen (0-5) will host Goochland High School (6-0) 7 p.m.
