Schools in Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe closed Monday due to Tropical Storm Eta

'It's counter intuitive and dangerous' to reopen schools now, Carvalho says

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami-Dade County Public Schools announced earlier Sunday that schools would be closed, but Broward County Public Schools first announced they would be conducting classes virtually. Earlier in the day, a robocall went out from Superintendent Robert Runcie alerting parents that school on Monday would be online-only.

Now, BCPS is canceling all classes due to concerns of possible widespread power outages to the district’s eLearning environment.

On Monday, all BCPS campuses and administrative offices will be closed.

In Monroe County, all schools will be closed on Monday (including virtual), with plans to open on Tuesday if conditions allow, according to Kristen Livengood, public information officer for Monroe County.
