posted Sep 6, 2017, 9:40 AM by Donna Burns

Good afternoon Plato Families,

Thursday, Sept. 7 and Friday, Sept. 8, 2017:

 All Pinellas County Schools and school district offices will be CLOSED on Thursday, Sept. 7 and Friday, Sept. 8. All school-related activities are cancelled.

Plato Academy and Pinellas County Schools is working closely with Pinellas County Emergency Management to monitor Hurricane Irma and its potential impact on our region.

Although the exact trajectory of the storm and impact on our region remains uncertain, our community’s preparedness and the safety of our employees and families are the priority. For this reason, schools and offices will be closed on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017 and Friday, Sept. 8, 2017.

We hope this closure will provide our community and employees the time needed to assist their families and prepare for the potential impact of Hurricane Irma.

Looking ahead: 

It is too early to determine the impact of Hurricane Irma on school operations for Monday, Sept. 11. District safety managers will continue to monitor the storm and an update will be provided on Saturday or Sunday.

Information on weather-related closures will be communicated by:

  • E-mail message to employees and families
  • Information posted on school's website
  • Information will be shared with local TV, radio, print and online news outlets
  • Information posted on WPDS-Ch. 14 (UHF Ch. 14, Bright House Networks Ch. 635, WOW Ch. 2. and Verizon Ch. 46)
