BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District is open Monday — and on a normal schedule — despite Tropical Storm Isaac.
According to the school district in a just released statement:
School district officials have announced that all Palm Beach County Public schools will be open and operating on normal schedules on Monday, August 27, as the storm continues to track well west of Palm Beach County.
Officials at the Palm Beach County Emergency Operations Center tell school officials that wind and rain today did not develop as initially forecast, due to the storm tracking further west, and they say conditions in Palm Beach County will continue to improve tonight and tomorrow with lighter winds and less rain than earlier forecast.
Safety is always our top priority, and as there may still be periods of rain and wind in some areas tomorrow, parents are reminded to take appropriate precautions for their children, especially those who may normally walk or ride their bikes to or from school and the bus stop.
