Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Superintendent and staff have maintained constant communication with emergency management officials throughout the day in monitoring the continuous rain and potential flooding in our area.

To ensure the safety of students and staff, all District schools and administrative offices will be closed on Thursday, November 16, 2023. All before and after-school activities, events, field trips, sporting events, scheduled meetings, planned night events and evening classes are also canceled.

BCPS thanks all its employees, especially our maintenance and facilities personnel, who will be canvassing schools to assess if any campuses experience water intrusions or other damages.

If make-up days are needed due to this closure, the District will work to communicate information to families as soon as possible.

The District will continue to provide updated information on our District’s website ( and through our social media accounts – @browardschools – on X/Twitter and Facebook.

We appreciate the ongoing support of our students, staff, families and the entire Broward County community.
