CCSD schools to close Friday through Tuesday for Hurricane Irma

CCSD schools to close Friday through Tuesday for Hurricane Irma

"Due to the threat of severe weather and wind from Hurricane Irma, all Greenville County Schools and offices will be closed on Monday, September 11, and all school-associated activities are cancelled".

All Spartanburg County schools will be closed on Monday.

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and every decision is made with this in mind.

The district is among the first to cancel schools ahead of the storm.

As of mid-afternoon Friday, none of the Midlands' public school systems had announced closures, although it is typical of them to follow county offices' lead on closings and delays.

Hurricane Irma is forecast to make landfall in Florida Sunday, then move north into Georgia.

Phillip Milano, JU News Director, sent a statement, which reads in part, "The campus is being fully prepared around the clock in the event of inclement weather from Irma".

Meanwhile, The Florida Department of Education is coordinating with school districts, public colleges and universities to monitor the storm. Students, faculty and staff should monitor alerts.fsu.edu for official FSU updates and emergency information and instructions.

Scott has said more volunteers will be needed and registration can be done HERE.

"We hope we have your understanding that we are erring on the side of caution early so that our families and staff can just focus this weekend on preparing their homes and making arrangements for their children", the post said.

No decision has been made for Limestone's campus in Gaffney at this time. This includes all campuses in Puerto Rico and Florida (Miami, Miramar, Ocean Campus, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, Palm Beach, and Jacksonville).

The Wakulla County School District will be closed through Wednesday, 9/13. Check nova.edu/hurricane for updates.
