Day 4 of road closure because of smoke from brush fire

For the fourth consecutive morning, authorities have closed State Road 44 near Royal Trails and Pine Lakes and buses cannot get through. There will be no bus service in that area this morning (Thursday, 4/20). As we've done all week, absences will be excused and tests rescheduled for students who cannot get to school. The affected schools are the same as before: Umatilla Elementary, Umatilla Middle, Umatilla High, Seminole Springs Elementary, Eustis Middle and Eustis High. Alee Academy, a charter school, also has pickups in the area.
