Word of Life Christian School will be closed this coming Monday 9-11-17. If Polk County Schools are closed on Tuesday Word of Life will be closed as well. We pray for safety over all of our students and their families. Again, we pray this storm turns and has no affect on Florida or any other state.
Word Of Life Christian School follows the Polk County School Board so we will be closed Friday, Sept 8. Here is the information from Polk County School Website:
Polk County Public Schools Will be Closed Due to Hurricane Irma on Friday, Sept. 8.
Public schools and district offices in Polk County will be closed on Friday, Sept. 8, 2017 in response to Hurricane Irma.
These closings, made in collaboration with Polk County Emergency Management personnel, will provide residents with time to make preparations. District staff must also work with emergency personnel to prepare some of our schools to serve as shelters for those directly impacted by Hurricane Irma.
Please be advised that the decision to close is not binding upon charter and private schools. Those schools should be contacted directly for more information.
Again, public schools and district offices in Polk County will be closed on Friday, Sept. 8. We will continue to monitor news and weather reports before announcing any additional closures.
We know that the decision as to whether to close our schools and offices has a huge impact on the plans and lives of our students and employees as well as their families. We appreciate their understanding and patience. We will continue to monitor weather conditions as they develop and remain in contact with Polk County emergency personnel.
