Lake schools will re­open Tues­day

Orlando Sentinel - - HURRICANE IRMA - Les­lie Postal

Stu­dents in Lake County pub­lic schools will re­turn to class Tues­day, while school staff will re­turn Mon­day. In other Cen­tral Florida dis­tricts, in­clud­ing Orange, Semi­nole, Osce­ola, Bre­vard, Polk and Vo­lu­sia, classes will re­sume Mon­day, ac­cord­ing to the Florida Department of Ed­u­ca­tion. Pub­lic schools have been closed all week af­ter Hur­ri­cane Irma pum­meled the re­gion Sun­day and Mon­day. Lake School Board mem­ber Bill Mathias de­tailed his district’s plans in a Face­book post Thurs­day. Lake still has some schools with­out power, he said, while oth­ers need leaky roofs and bro­ken win­dows re­paired or de­bris cleared from school grounds. Mathias said he hoped Gov. Rick Scott would waive the re­quire­ment to re­place the lost days. If not, he said, the district will sur­vey par­ents and em­ploy­ees about the best way to re­place that lost in­struc­tional time. “Thank you for your con­tin­ued pa­tience dur­ing this chal­leng­ing time,” Mathias wrote.
