Broward County Public Schools reopen today

Daily News Stories,

Broward County Public Schools are open Monday and are operating normally.

The district made the announcement on Sunday afternoon, saying all school campuses and administrative offices would be open.

Schools were shut last week following the historic rain that moved through Broward County.

Extreme flooding has impacted several areas of Broward County, including about 20 schools in the county.

Some schools, like Walker Elementary in Fort Lauderdale, were completely inaccessible.

Many students were excited to return to school Monday morning after classes were canceled for two days last week following the storm.

Video shows some locations having water in the hallways and classrooms, and there were also pictures showing tiles scattered and roof leaks, as well.

School officials say about 20 schools countywide have issues related to the historic storm and they are estimating at least $2 million in repairs.

Some other schools of concerns are the Whiddon Rogers Education Center, William Dandy Middle School and Seagull Alternative High School, where Sky 10 flew above last week, showing the school surrounded by water.

The district said staff members worked throughout the weekend to ensure that all schools and facilities are safe for students and faculty members.
