Following a damage assessment at all our school sites, Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittlestadt announces that classes for all students will resume at their regular time Monday, October 3rd.
“We know many families are still dealing with the effects of Tropical Storm Ian,” said Mittelstadt. “We also have several of our employees who live in neighboring counties still trying to recover These are all things we take into account when we decide to reopen our schools.”
Our Transportation Department has surveyed bus stops in areas across Flagler County where there are still flooding concerns. In neighborhoods where alternate bus stops are necessary, that information has been relayed to the families.
Superintendent Mittelstadt says, “There are not enough words to describe the job our district leadership, in coordination with our Custodial, Food and Nutrition, Plant Services, and Technology Departments, did in providing dozens of our neighbors a safe place to stay during the storm. The speed at which they set up two shelters and then transformed them back for our educational use was amazing.”
