THOMASVILLE, NC -- Some Triad schools are preparing for possible flooding from Hurricane Irma.
Dozens of sandbags have been placed around the doors outside of Liberty Drive Elementary School in Thomasville.
Schools officials say parts of the campus are in a low-lying area which are prone to flooding during big storms.
Another issue school officials are monitoring are the school's drainage systems.
School custodians have been working this week to clear drains of any debris to help the water flower easier.
Officials say they're monitoring the weather conditions because every school in the city could see some effects from the heavy winds and rain.
