Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will reopen on Wednesday, September 4, 2019. All District schools and offices will follow their normal operating schedules. The Broward County School Board Operational Meeting, Special School Board Meeting and Second Public Hearing – Budget, will also take place as scheduled on Wednesday.
The decision to reopen schools is based on the latest information from the Emergency Operation Center on Hurricane Dorian.
“I would like to thank our entire community for its support, and all of our District staff and volunteers for their willingness and readiness to do whatever it takes to serve our families, as we monitored the track of the storm,” said Superintendent Robert W. Runcie. “At all times, the safety of our students and families is our highest priority. While we are grateful that our community was spared the worst of Hurricane Dorian, our hearts are with those impacted by the storm. We are just beginning to comprehend the massive devastation residents in the Bahamas have endured and are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.”
As the District prepares to reopen, all BCPS employees should report to work at their normal work locations and at their regular start times on Wednesday, unless instructed otherwise by their supervisor.
The District looks forward to welcoming all students and employees back to school on Wednesday, September 4.
