With Hurricane Matthew looming on the east coast, all OCPS schools will be closed on Thursday and Friday, according to OCPS.
That includes any school activities that would’ve taken place on the weekend, too.
This is intended to give families time to prepare for any effects of the storm, the press release states.
In the meantime, district maintenance and facilities staff will be preparing the schools for the storm in case they need to be used as shelters.
OCPS will be monitoring the storm closely and will deliver updates as needed to families and staff.
