Update as of September 2nd @ 12:00pm: Superintendent Oliva Tours Campuses in Wake of Hurricane Hermine
Flagler Schools Superintendent Jacob Oliva spent Friday morning assessing the school campuses around the county following Hurricane Hermine. While Flagler County was spared a direct hit from the storm, gusty winds associated with the system forced a Friday closure of all schools and activities.
Says Superintendent Oliva, “It appears the storm had minimal impact on our facilities. I want to thank our facilities and custodial staffs for their tremendous work in preparing for the weather.”
Superintendent Oliva also has high praise for Flagler County emergency managers. “I want to thank Steve Garten and his entire staff with Flagler County Emergency Services. It’s never an easy decision to cancel school, but Steve and his team kept us up to date on this changing storm path and the possible dangers associated with this system.”
Finally, Mr. Oliva has a message for our Flagler Schools families. “We understand the disruption caused by this hurricane on our families may not have been easy. We thank all of our Flagler Schools families, teachers, staff and administrators for their understanding as situations changed rapidly Thursday afternoon.”
All of our campuses are ready to resume normal schedules following the Labor Day weekend on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. The makeup day will be announced to parents in the next few weeks.
As always, was encourage our families to check the Flagler County Emergency Services website at www.flagleremergency.com for storm-readiness information and tips so that everyone is prepared for the next storm.
Update as of September 1st @ 4:00pm: After consultation with Flagler County Emergency Managers, Flagler Schools Superintendent Jacob Oliva has decided to close all schools and offices, and cancelling all after-school activities and extended day programs for Friday, September 2nd.
We are anticipating high winds with this storm which will not allow our buses and parents to safely transport students.
Superintendent Oliva says “This decision is not taken lightly. It is done with the guidance and direction from Emergency Managers and first responders. We must be able to safely transport our students and that is a major factor in making this call.”
In order to inform parents and guardians, automated phone calls and emails will be sent out advising of the latest school cancellations. Necessary updates will be made to the district’s website at www.flaglerschools.com as well as our Twitter and Facebook pages. We will also update our local media partners.
We expect all normal school operations and activities will resume normal schedules following the Labor Day weekend on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. The makeup day will be announced to parents in the next few weeks.
