CCSD schools to close Friday through Tuesday for Hurricane Irma

CCSD schools to close Friday through Tuesday for Hurricane Irma

The decision to close schools and offices was made in collaboration with Polk County Emergency Management personnel.

Also closed on Monday are all Sumter School District offices and schools.

Although Greenville is seemingly well out of the way of Hurricane Irma's projected path, Greenville County Schools has canceled school for tomorrow, Monday, Sept. 11.

Administrators in Greenwood County School District 50, District 51 and District 52 will make a decision Sunday evening about school closings.

The Madison County School District will be closed through Tuesday, 9/12.

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

"Today, I am directing the closure of all public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices for their normal activities effective Friday through Monday, to ensure we have every space available for sheltering and staging", Gov. Scott said.

"The campus is being fully prepared around the clock in the event of inclement weather from Irma".

Limestone College's extended campus locations will be closed on Monday, according to a release from the school. Students, faculty and staff should monitor alerts.fsu.edu for official FSU updates and emergency information and instructions.

Edward Waters College staff said the school is monitoring and preparing for Hurricane Irma. The university has chose to move UCF's football game against the University of Memphis to 6:30 p.m. Friday. This includes all campuses in Puerto Rico and Florida (Miami, Miramar, Ocean Campus, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, Palm Beach, and Jacksonville).
