Schools Officials Prepare for Fay

August 18th, 2008 by flanews

The first day of the school year for some Florida students was spent at home. Classes were cancelled in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties today because of the threat of Tropical Storm Fay. Florida Atlantic University closed its campus at noon today. Commissioner of Education Eric Smith said school superintends across the state will be monitoring Fay to see if they need to cancel classes on Tuesday.

We anticipate many of the school districts will be making decisions this afternoon and early this evening about tomorrows status. Again we encourage all parents to stay tuned to their local news agencies for those announcements as they come forward, said Smith.

More than a dozen school districts have in South and Central Florida have already decided they wont be holding classes tomorrow.
