M-DCPS is Ready for Hurricane Season, Urges Families to Prepare with Florida’s Storm-Related Tax ‘Holiday'

It is that time of year again and Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is ready and prepared for the start of hurricane season, which begins June 1st. Safety is among M-DCPS’ top  priorities and the District will once again work directly with the National Hurricane Center and the Miami-Dade County Office of Emergency Management to monitor any hurricane activity.

M-DCPS’ technology and applications will help ensure a smooth process in restoring normal school and District operations following a tropical storm or hurricane.

Also, from June 1 through June 14, families in Florida can buy batteries, coolers, flashlights, weather radios, generators and pet supplies and pay no sales taxes.

The Department of Revenue has created a webpage with the qualifying items that are exempt from sales tax.
