Hernando schools closed Tuesday



Hernando County schools will be closed Tuesday, according to Barry Crowley, the district's director of security.

"They want to be able to open shelters tomorrow morning," Crowley said.

The district will open shelters in the cafeterias of three schools: Challenger K-8 School of Science and Mathematics, Hernando High School and West Hernando Middle School. West Hernando Middle School will serve as the district's special needs shelter.

Schools will dismiss at the usual times today.

Plans for Wednesday are uncertain. "It's really going to depend on the track of the storm," Crowley said. He added the district hopes to make a decision regarding Wednesday sometime later today or tomorrow morning.
