Brevard County Public Schools Assesses Damage, No Announcement On Re-Opening Yet
By Brevard Public Schools // October 8, 2016
facility damage is minimal
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Now that Hurricane Mathew has moved out of the area and people are working diligently to return to normalcy, be assured that Brevard Public Schools is working tirelessly to evaluate our capacity to resume school on Monday, October 10.
We are very fortunate that facility damage is minimal, however power is now our main concern at this time.
This issue not only impacts Monday morning operations, but also our ability to evaluate systems (HVAC) functionality prior to school start times.
We are working with county officials, local municipalities and Florida Power & Light (FPL) to determine feasibility to resolve these issues.
Due to our dependence on FPL’s timeline to restore full power to Brevard County, we will not have a decision regarding Monday’s operations until Sunday, October 9.
We are evaluating what is the absolute best decision for our students and staff, but please be advised that should school resume on Monday, there still may be unresolved issues with HVAC and other services for the early part of the week.
PLEASE NOTE: BPS cannot answer questions to specific schools at this time.
