Orange County Public Schools closed through Thursday

Some Gwinnett schools had leaks but no major damage reported so far

Pasco Schools said the plan is subject to change and if schools are not as acceptable operation levels by Friday, classes will not resume on Monday. Two schools and many students and staff members in the county do not have power.

Orange County Public Schools has announced that it will continue to keep schools closed through Thursday, due to the effects of Hurricane Irma.

Power was restored to seven schools and offices on Tuesday that had been knocked out.

The district says it will close on September 13 and September 14 because officials know many students and their families are still without power, recovering from damage or returning from evacuation.


At some schools, there are trees down and debris in parking lots and auto line areas. Many schools served shelters before and after the storm.

Nine Greenville County schools and the central 0ffice are still without power and district officials plan to meet this afternoon to discuss whether or not to call off classes for Wednesday.

She says it's possible the missed days may be forgiven after South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster declared a state of emergency because of Irma.
