Monitoring Matthew: School Closures

Because of the strength of Hurricane Matthew and the path it is expected to take, Lake County’s emergency operations team is making storm preparation plans that include using many of our schools as safety shelters.

To accommodate that need, schools will be closed on Thursday and Friday this week.

Students will make up lost instructional time on Nov. 21 and Nov. 22, previously scheduled storm makeup days.

Please stay tuned to local forecasts and take all necessary safety precautions. We look forward to seeing students back in school on Monday.
