HURRICANE MATTHEW STATUS – 10/5/16
Due to the progression of Hurricane Matthew, Duval County Public Schools is closing all schools and offices, and cancelling all after-school activities and extended day care on Thursday, October 6 and Friday, October 7, 2016. In addition, all after-school activities are cancelled Wednesday. Extended day will continue until all children are picked up, but we do encourage parents to pick up their children as soon as possible after school. This decision is based on current storm projections for Duval County, which indicates the likelihood of both hurricane and tropical force rain, winds, and flooding beginning Thursday night and throughout Friday. In addition, key school sites will be made available and used for shelters as requested by the Duval County Emergency Operations Center. In order to inform parents and guardians, automated phone calls and emails will be sent out advising of the latest school cancellations, and necessary updates will be made to the district’s website at www.duvalschools.org, DCPS mobile app, Twitter (@DuvalSchools), and Facebook pages. Additionally, we will also continue to share information and updates with local media outlets. The safety of our students and community is of paramount importance, and we ask all residents to Stay Aware and Prepare by taking proper precautions during this severe weather system. We anticipate all normal school operations and activities will resume as scheduled on Monday, October 10, 2016. Makeup weather days will be announced at a later date.
