OCPS Remains Closed on Monday, Relocates One Elementary School

Orange County Public Schools announced that after consultation with local officials, schools will not reopen Monday, October 3rd, due to safety concerns and continued power outages at a number of our schools. One local elementary school will reopen later in the week after being temporarily relocated. OCPS said the plan is to reopen all other schools and resume normal operations Tuesday, October 4th.

OCPS maintenance teams will continue to address power outages with our electrical providers, according to the school system. All student activities will resume sometime next week. Athletic competitions will be determined at the schools’ discretion.

Unfortunately, due to flooding experienced at Riverdale Elementary, students and staff will return to school on Thursday, October 6th and will be temporarily relocated to East River High School.

“Our priority is to ensure all students and staff return to a safe learning environment as soon as possible,” OCPS said in a statement. “We recommend that parents of walkers or bike riders check the route to school prior to Tuesday morning to ensure safe routes to and from school.”

Orlando and Orange County were added to the FEMA Disaster Assistance for Florida after Hurricane Ian as well.
