Following school closings during Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew, Flagler Schools needs to make up five days. The first of these “hurricane make up days” will be this Friday, October 14th. This was originally scheduled to be a Teacher Work Day. Additional make up days will be announced at a later date.

As a reminder schools will not open until Wednesday. District crews have been working with municipal teams to ready our campuses for the return of students then.

We'd like to clarify the upcoming schedule for the week. Regionally, school districts were trying to determine the fesability of reopening schools on Tuesday. After much discussion, Superintendent Jacob Oliva has decided that is not possible and we will remain closed Monday and Tuesday. So many of our families heeded the warning and evacuated. They are just now returning to their homes and some are deailing with a daunting cleanup. We want our familes to be safe during this time. Know that our schools will be open for learning on Wednesday, October 12th.

Maintenance teams from Flagler Schools are touring all schools and sites today, assessing the damages now that the weather has cleared following Hurricane Matthew. Preliminary checks show some exterior damage at a few sites.

Bunnell Elementary School, Rymfire Elementary School and Buddy Taylor Middle School are still being used as shelters for displaced Flagler County residents.

Superintendent Jacob Oliva has determined because these damage assessments and clean-up operations will take time, as well as the continued need of shelter space for our residents all schools will remain closed Monday and Tuesday. We are currently developing a timeline for when schools will reopen.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Flagler County as we begin the difficult process of cleaning up. We thank our school community and Flagler County as a whole for their support through the coming days and weeks ahead.


Wednesday, October 5, 9:00 am:

The Youth Center is closed after school on Wednesday October 5th - Friday October 7th. The Youth Center will resume to a normal schedule next week unless there is storm damage. Information will be release by Flagler Schools. See below update as of October 5th.

"After consulting with the National Weather Service and Flagler County Emergency Managers, Superintendent Jacob Oliva has canceled all after-school events Wednesday, October 5th. Extended-day programs will continue. Additionally, classes and school activities for Thursday and Friday, October 6th and 7th have been canceled because of Hurricane Matthew.

Flagler Schools is preparing to have a number of schools activated as emergency shelters as this very dangerous storm system approaches the Flagler County coast.

We encourage everyone in the county to listen to our emergency managers and take the necessary safety precautions.

You can get additional information through"

Flagler Schools is closely monitoring Hurricane Matthew and the possible effects we could see from a storm system close to our coastline later in the week. It is much too soon to determine if our school schedule will be impacted by this storm, but we are in constant contact with emergency managers with Flagler County Emergency Services. Should our school schedules be changed, we will let our families know via our district website, social media accounts as well as automated phone calls.

Please take the time now to make sure your contact information is correct and updated with your school.

We strongly suggest our families take stock of their hurricane/storm supplies and get them updated and stocked. It is also a good idea to check for other storm-related information.
