Durham public schools to close Thursday for Hurricane Michael

Durham public schools will close Thursday in anticipation of heavy rains from Hurricane Michael, school officials announced today.

“Due to the probability of travel conditions becoming unsafe during the school day due to Hurricane Michael, Durham Public Schools will be CLOSED to students and staff on Thursday, Oct. 11,” the district said in a statement.

All athletic events and extracurricular activities scheduled for Thursday have also been canceled.

The decision follows Superintendent Pascal Mubenga’s apology to the community for holding classes during Hurricane Florence, when torrential rains and a tornado warning turned a Monday morning commute into mayhem for parents, teachers and staff.
