How to check if your child's school is closed due to Hurricane Dorian

Updates available on Florida Department of Education's website

As Hurricane Dorian makes its way toward Florida, parents are wondering whether their children will need to attend school after Labor Day.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said last week that the Florida Department of Education will post school closures on a special section of its website, FLDOE.org/hurricaneinfo

That site will be updated as schools across the state and it also includes information about how to find a shelter and how to prepare your family for the storm.
