Like you are preparing for Hurricane Dorian by stocking up on groceries and securing your home, our district is equipping our school shelters, just in case we need to open any schools to provide a safe place for evacuees. As of Friday evening, no schools are open as shelters. In the coming days, County Emergency Operations will make the decision if/when/which shelters will be opened.
Today, our district Security Officers are helping the county by delivering kits to shelters filled with paperwork and essentials.
Schools are also preparing their classrooms to possibly house evacuees and are working to secure buildings.
