UPDATE Tuesday 2:20 p.m.: Schools Superintendent Robert Avossa will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. Tues. Oct. 4 to address plans as Hurricane Matthew pushes up the coast.
St. Lucie County schools have already made the call, closing on Thursday and Friday. Palm Beach Atlantic is also calling off classes those days. FAU and Lynn University have yet to announce a decision.
Original post Monday, Oct. 3, 2016:
School is out Monday. But the big question is will Hurricane Matthew scuttle another day this week, and the answer is it’s too soon to tell.
The Palm Beach County School District is watching Matthew’s track and talking to the county’s emergency management officials. Should the storm generate unsafe conditions, the district will alert parents in a variety of ways including robocalls to parents, posts on the district’s website and through Twitter – follow @pbcsd – and Facebook.
Of course, we’ll be keeping tabs on this as well in Extra Credit. Palm Beach Post reporter Kim Miller, @KMillerWeather, will keep you up to date on the big picture and what weather we can expect on her WeatherPlus blog. (While students should continue to crank out their studies, the Coast Guard is urging boaters to prepare now. )
