Public schools and district offices in Polk County will remain closed on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

We will continue to work closely with the Emergency Operations Center, the City of Jax, and our district emergency personnel to ensure our schools are safe for return.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause families, but the safety and security of students and employees is our first priority. The school district also advised everyone to make plans and complete preparations early. The decision to close will be up to the local districts.

All Anderson County schools will be closed on Monday, according to the school district's Facebook page.

Jacksonville University said it is monitoring the situation and will announced a decision by 5 p.m. Wednesday on whether to cancel Friday classes and events. "Closing public schools, state colleges, state universities and state offices will provide local and state emergency officials the flexibility necessary to support shelter and emergency response efforts".

Scott has said more volunteers will be needed and registration can be done HERE.

The University of Central Florida was also looking at a number of possibilities on Tuesday.

Action News Jax learned Tuesday night that all DCPS football games will be moved from Friday night to Thursday night.

Any afterschool programs and extracurricular activities will not take place.

The Wakulla County School District will be closed through Wednesday, 9/13.
