Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) administrators are closely monitoring Hurricane Dorian’s track and will remain in close communication with Miami-Dade’s Office of Emergency Management and other local, state, and federal officials.
Based on the latest information from the National Weather Service and after consultation with the County’s emergency officials, there will be no impact to the regular school day or afterschool care programs on Friday, August 30. However, all school facilities will be secured, and all adult education classes cancelled beginning Friday at 6:00 p.m. and until further notice. Beginning on Saturday and until further notice, all athletic activities and practices will be suspended. As a reminder, because of the Labor Day holiday, there is no school on Monday.
Schools that have been designated as shelters are ready, and, if necessary, will be activated in close coordination with County officials.
District officials will continue to monitor the weather system and provide updates relative to the upcoming school week via automated messaging. The District will also be sharing information via social media, mainstream media, and posting it on our website at storms.dadeschools.net
M-DCPS can communicate quickly and effectively with parents through automated messages via voice, email, and text, but it is essential to have updated and accurate contact information. In order to receive important communications and EMERGENCY messages from the District, parents should ensure their information is updated at their child’s school.
