Miami-Dade County Public Schools will be closed on Monday, Superintendent Alberto Carvalho announced on Saturday morning.
Miami-Dade County emergency officials were tracking Tropical Storm Isaac's progress on Thursday.
Emergency officials suggested waiting until Saturday to put up shutters. They suggested checking your equipment before then.
Carvalho added that the 400 schools in the district had already been prepared for an incoming storm as South Florida remains in the cone of uncertainty.
Many of the schools also serve as shelters if an evacuation is issued. The Red Cross decides which shelters will be open. Their decision is based on evacuations. Schools designated as shelters were also stocked with supplies.
