Just got this....

Florida prepares for Hurricane Wilma, schools, which are used as Emergency Shelters, could be closing for classes, as they get ready.

A memo has gone out to school principals and staff, in some school districts, reading "...facilities need to clean up and secure their campus in preparation Hurricane Wilma. Superintendent Cox plans to make the decision regarding Friday in the morning, so we plan to let you know as soon as we can. There maybe a need for shelters to start opening on Friday evening. We also need you to cancel all school activities that were scheduled for Friday and Saturday (all extra-curricular activities). We are currently working on a letter for you to send home with your students tomorrow."
