Many of our schools are still being used as shelters, and many of our students' families and our employees need time to make it back to Southwest Florida after evacuating from Hurricane Irma.
This will also provide time for cleanup and repair of our homes, schools and community. At this time we plan to reopen schools and district offices Monday, September 18th. Please continue to check our website and social media channels as well as local media outlets.
We are thankful this hurricane was not as destructive as was first predicted, but know some do have damage and repairs. We are thinking of you. Please continue to be safe during the cleanup process and your travels home.
All Lee County Schools and District Offices will be closed on Tuesday, September 12 due to Hurricane Irma.
We are thinking of our families and hoping for the best. Please stay safe.
Today, Governor Rick Scott is directing all public K-12 schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices to close Friday, September 8 – Monday, September 11.
Governor Scott said, “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. Floridians are facing a life-threatening storm in Hurricane Irma, and every family must prepare to evacuate. Our state’s public schools serve a vital role in our communities as shelters for displaced residents and staging areas for hurricane recovery efforts. Closing public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices will provide local and state emergency officials the flexibility necessary to support shelter and emergency response efforts.”
