COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Collier County Public Schools were closed on Monday, August 27th because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Students will make up the day of lost instructional time by extending two previously scheduled half days to full days.
Thursday, October 18, and Tuesday, November 6, were previously scheduled as Early Dismissal days and will now become regular full days of school for the district’s students and staff.
The decision was made to close all schools and district offices on August 27th, to ensure the safety of all students and staff members and to allow for the opening of storm shelters for Collier County.
The changes to the academic school calendar will be recommended by staff to the School Board for approval at the next regularly scheduled School Board Meeting on Tuesday, September 11.
