Broward County Public Schools have canceled all classes Wednesday and Thursday due to Hurricane Ian, administrators said.
Before and after school activities are also canceled, including field trips, night classes, and aftercare.
The district chose to hold regular classes Tuesday. But all after-school activities, field trips, and night classes were canceled. Administrators asked parents and guardians to pick up their students from after-school care as soon as possible.
“The district continues to work closely with emergency management officials to monitor the approaching storm and its impact on Broward County,” said Superintendent Vickie Cartwright. “As it relates to our operations on Thursday and Friday, we will provide an update as soon as possible through our regular communication channels and social media pages on Twitter and Facebook.”
Ian is forecast to make landfall along Florida’s gulf coast Wednesday as a powerful Category 3 hurricane. Wind and rain are expected to impact South Florida.
