School closure information for Southwest Florida in wake of Hurricane Irma

School closure information for Southwest Florida in wake of Hurricane Irma”

Schools and universities in the Tampa Bay area are announcing plans to reopen and resume classes after Hurricane Irma.

Fourteen schools were used as shelters during the storm by more than 18,000 people and thousands of pets, he said.

Lee County Schools and District Offices will also be closed through Friday, September 15th.

Also, about 60 evacuees remained in one shelter as of Monday morning, officials said.

DeSoto County Schools are closed until further notice. We have an unbelievable team preparing our campuses for schools to reopen. "We have other buildings that it's going to be an uphill climb", Bowden said. Those pet visitors, in particular, caused significant messes that need deep cleaning. A lack of power, internet and telephone service seems to be the biggest roadblock to opening, they said. And during the height of the storm, all shelters became pet-friendly, and pets were no longer required to be in crates. Custodians will still return to work on Tuesday for clean up.

The Ledger-Enquirer asked Lewis whether students will have to make up the missed classed days.
