Like you, our team is closely monitoring the forecasts for Tropical Storm Nicole.
The current track shows that we can expect tropical storm-force winds (ranging from 58 to 73 mph) to begin impacting our area on Wednesday evening.
Our greatest concern is the safety of our students and staff. High wind speeds affect our ability to operate school buses safely. The Florida Department of Education recommends that school buses not operate when wind speeds exceed 35 to 40 mph.
Based on the forecast, and out of an abundance of caution, Superintendent Fred Heid has decided to cancel school on Thursday, Nov. 10. All after-school activities are canceled Wednesday and Thursday.
Again, based on the current forecast, school will take place tomorrow, Nov. 9. All PCPS schools and offices will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 10.
Please remember that our schools and offices will also be closed on Friday, Nov. 11, in observance of Veterans Day.
