Joella C. Good Elementary was also added to the list of schools that will be online-only on Tuesday.
All schools in Miami-Dade and Broward were closed Monday due to Tropical Storm Eta.
A decision on what to do about Tuesday in Miami-Dade was delayed mainly because of flooding issues in different parts of Miami-Dade County, according to Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, and not because the schools were not ready to open.
The vast majority of @MDCPS schools are reporting a high level of readiness to reopen on Tuesday. However, community flooding issues may pose access challenges at a few schools. Announcement will be made later today regarding Tuesday’s operations. pic.twitter.com/IM3ZqTvgb3— Alberto M. Carvalho (@MiamiSup) November 9, 2020
Tropical Storm Eta is estimated to have dropped over a foot of rain on South Florida between Sunday and Monday.
