The approach of Tropical Storm Eta means school closures and changes in our region.
To start, all Palm Beach County public schools will be closed Monday.
Palm Beach County Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy made that announcement during a Sunday news conference with county officials.
He added, “This means that there will be no school tomorrow for students either in person or virtually.”

On the Treasure Coast, public schools will be closed Monday in Martin and St. Lucie counties.
According to Jennifer DeShazo, spokeswoman for the Martin County School District, “These conditions, which are hazardous for all motorists, will also prevent us from safely transporting students to and from school on buses.”
The closures cover in-person and virtual learning.
In addition, Miami-Dade County schools will be closed on Monday.
The Broward County School District announced Sunday evening that all classes, both in-person and online, are cancelled Monday. The district had originally announced that it would be operating with remote learning for the day.
This is a developing story.
