Storm Update #2:
September 27, 2022 at 10:40 A.M.
This is Superintendent David Broskie with an update on the potential impacts of Hurricane Ian on our school district. District leadership is continuing to monitor Hurricane Ian around the clock alongside our partners at Clay County Emergency Management, the National Weather Service, and local meteorologists. Due to the projection and potential aftermath of the storm, in partnership with Emergency Management and our mutual agreement for the use of our schools that operate as hurricane shelters, we are closing schools and district offices for Wednesday, September 28, through Friday, September 30. After school activities and athletics will continue as normal for today, Tuesday, September 27th, 2022.
Please know, as a District, we have worked diligently this week to remove potential hazards and barriers around campuses, so our recovery team can respond rapidly and prepare for school openings the following week. My goal is to return to normalcy as soon as possible.
If you haven't done so already, please sign up for weather alerts through Clay County. This information is on our website, oneclay.net, where we will post any major status updates. Additionally, follow us on our district social media platforms for announcements. More information on shelter operations can be found at Alert.ClayCountyGov.com.
Please stay tuned for further updates. Thank you and please stay safe Clay County.
