BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — All Palm Beach County PUBLIC Schools are closed Thursday. This announcement was just made by the school district:
The outer bands of Hurricane Ian continue to impact Palm Beach County. As such, Superintendent Mike Burke has made the decision to keep schools and District offices closed Thursday, September 29, 2022.
Additionally, all after-school activities, including sports, school meetings, and leases are also canceled on September 29. Hurricane response team employees will be contacted by their supervisor as needed to assess school campuses and prepare for reopening.
Currently, there are no initial reports of heavy damage on any of our 180 District-operated campuses. District assessment teams, including School District Police, will inspect schools once the threat of tropical storm force winds is gone and it is safe to do so. Anyone who notices damage is asked to report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Superintendent Burke also continues to work closely with County, State, and Federal emergency management officials to assess Ian’s impact on the District, and determine when it is safe for schools and offices to reopen.
Parents and Staff, the District appreciates your patience through this process. We encourage you to stay informed by visiting the District’s designated Hurricane Ian Update and Resource page. The District will also continue to update parents and staff via email and phone.
