Important Weather Update: Tropical Storm Erika FAQs

As a Pinellas County Public School, we follow the same Guidelines as the County concerning School Closings.  The following Memo was issued by the District today.  

August 28 2015 

Pinellas County School district safety managers are meeting regularly with the Pinellas County Emergency Operations Center to stay apprised of the status of Tropical Storm Erika.

Please consider preparations you need to make at this time to keep you and your family safe if our area is affected by severe weather.

You may have questions regarding possible school or facility closures. Here are questions and answers to help keep you informed:

Q: Will schools be closing?
A: It is too soon to determine if schools need to close due to Tropical Storm Erika. The storm’s path is too uncertain at this time to know what kind of impact it will have on Pinellas County.

Q: When will we know if schools will close?
A: If a decision needs to be made regarding school closure, it will likely be made Sunday, Aug. 30. This is highly dependent upon the storm’s forecast over the next 24-36 hours.

Q: How will any information regarding school closure be communicated?
A: There are multiple ways potential weather-related closures will be communicated:

·         PCSB Emergency Information Phone Line: (727) 588-6424. Recorded information will be available on this phone line.
