City Schools of Decatur will reopen Thursday, will bus students from schools without power
This story has been updated.
There will be school in the city of Decatur tomorrow, one way or another.
Some schools are still without power following damage brought by Hurricane Irma. But school officials plan to bus those students to schools with power, save for College Heights, which will remain closed.
“Clairemont Elementary students will begin and end their day at Clairemont and will be bused to Renfroe Middle School during the day for instruction,” Superintendent David Dude said in a Facebook post. “Westchester Elementary students will begin and end their day at Westchester and will be bused to Decatur High School during the day for instruction. To expedite the transitions to and from Clairemont and Westchester, the Decatur Police Department will direct traffic for the buses each way.”
Schools have been closed since Monday and school officials were considering closing schools for a fourth day. It will be a short return to the classroom, however. City Schools of Decatur will have its week-long fall break next week.
Here’s Superintendent Dude’s message to parents:
Power has been restored to most of our schools and City Schools of Decatur will be open on Thursday, September 14, 2017….
