Pinellas Schools to Reopen Monday

Pinellas Schools to Reopen Monday

The Muscogee County School District will reopen Wednesday after being closed the past two days because of Tropical Storm Irma's path through Columbus.

"Many of our schools are still being used as shelters, and many of our students' families and our employees need time to make it back to Southwest Florida after evacuating from Hurricane Irma", wrote Lauren Stillwell in a news statement.

"We are sorry so many people have been affected by Hurricane Irma". Now they're slowly starting to transition back. With the move, Pinellas joins the Hernando and Pasco school systems, which earlier announced plans to reopen Monday.

"I can't wait to go home", says Michelle Jones.

The district's Inclement Conditions Evaluation team was out this morning between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. doing damage assessments and found no significant damage to schools.

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.

Governor Rick Scott mandated the closure of all public schools, colleges and universities across the state last week in advance of the storm.
