Richland County Offices Closed Monday: Irma Plan in Place

With deep consideration for the safety of our students and community and the time needed to recover from Hurricane Irma, Duval County Public Schools has made a decision to close schools on Tuesday, September 12.

Collier County schools will be closed through Friday.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause families, but the safety and security of students and employees is our first priority. Several of the district's schools could be activated as American Red Cross shelters, if needed.

Also closed on Monday are all Sumter School District offices and schools.

Any updates for future closings or delays will be announced using the school district's automated telephone service, website, or social media.
