Alee Academy is hopeful to open for students on Tuesday, September 19 as Lake County School plans to, however our school is still without power. We will continue to post updates throughout the weekend with our plans for reopening to students. Teachers & staff should plan to return on Monday, September 18th to get everything ready for the students’ possible return on Tuesday.
All Lake County public schools and district offices will remain closed through Friday, Sept. 15, as we continue post-Hurricane Irma restoration/repair efforts. All extracurricular activities, including sports practices, are canceled for the week as well. Students should not report to school and most employees are not expected to report to work. Maintenance, Custodial, Grounds and Food Service employees may be needed to help prepare our facilities for reopening. These employees should contact their immediate supervisor for direction.
As you may know, Hurricane Irma is churning in the Atlantic and will be impacting Florida over the next several days. We are watching the storm closely and will continue to provide updates here and on our website regarding any school closures. At the present time, our campus will be open Thursday, September 7 but we will be closed on Friday, September 8th to allow our staff time to make preparations for themselves and their families.
Weather Update: Per Lake County Schools Because of the strength of Hurricane Matthew and the path it is expected to take, Lake County’s emergency operations team is making storm preparation plans that include using many of our schools as safety shelters. To accommodate that need, schools will be closed on Thursday and Friday this week. Students will be expected to make up lost instructional time. However, the date and time of the makeup day will be announced at a later date.
