Gulf Shores City Schools to close Sept. 14 ahead of Tropical Storm Sally

Posted

Gulf Shores City Schools Superintendent Dr. Matt Akin released the following statement regarding the closure of schools Monday due to Tropical Storm Sally:

“We have been closely following the updates on Tropical Storm Sally. Earlier today school officials, along with City of Gulf Shores officials, participated in a webinar with the National Weather Service. Based on the latest forecast and the advice of local safety officials, all Gulf Shores City Schools will be closed tomorrow.

The Board of Education and school offices will be closed. Tropical storm force gusts are expected to arrive in our area Monday morning and we are specifically concerned about buses traveling along the coast and over bridges. We are also concerned about the possibility of flooding in low lying areas.

A decision about school cancellation for Tuesday will be made when more forecast information is available. Please stay tuned to our webpage www.gsboe.org and social media outlets for more information.”
