Deer Park Community,
Superintendent Browning today announced that all Pasco County schools and offices will be closed on Thursday, November 10, due to concerns regarding the expected dangerously high winds from Subtropical Storm Nicole. All before and after-school programs will be closed on Thursday as well. The decision was made after consulting with the Pasco County Emergency Operations Center.
Schools and offices will be open on Wednesday, and all after-hours extracurricular events are expected to go on as scheduled. At this time, we expect all schools and offices to reopen on Friday, November 11.
This decision will not affect the one-week Thanksgiving Break. It has not yet been determined how and when the time will be made up.
We will continue to track the path and severity of the storm, and we will provide updates as appropriate via the school district website, social media, and directly through emails and phone messages.
