Long County schools posted a message on Facebook telling people to prepare for some traffic delays when heading out to work or school Friday morning. The superintendent tells us there are three new principals around the district. And, if you don’t have all your school supplies just yet, they’ve got you covered.

“Trying to supply all our students with basic school supplies to help parents out and so our kids don’t have to worry about it. It’ll already be there for them,” Long County School District Superintendent David Edwards said.
