Tropical Storm Eta - Update 

Dear SDLC families and staff,

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

The School District of Lee County continues to monitor Tropical Storm Eta. The current information from the National Hurricane Center indicates that Lee County will no longer be under a Tropical Storm Watch tomorrow morning. Therefore, school will reopen tomorrow, Thursday, November 12, 2020. Secondary schools will operate on an odd-day schedule as planned.

District officials will assess areas of flooding early tomorrow morning. Should we determine that flooding poses a risk to the safety of our students and staff who attend schools in affected areas, we will communicate with those specific schools tomorrow morning.

The District will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Eta as it moves north and provide you with updates as needed.

Thank you.
The School District of Lee County
