We have now attended several calls with the Pasco County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) regarding Hurricane Michael and wanted to provide you with the latest update. There are still no plans to open schools as shelters or to close schools.

As of right now, we do not have any concern that the wind speed will reach the level that would result in any safety concern for buses to travel.

We will continue to work with the EOC to monitor the weather and will keep you posted with any developments.
