Eta's Flooding Shut Down Many South Florida Schools


23 public schools in Broward County transitioned to online due to flooding and power issues left behind by Tropical Storm Eta.

“I thought it was a good choice that they did that because we’re able to do it. And I think they should have called it last night instead of waiting early this morning, (causing) frustration for the parents, the students, especially, our special needs population that are not, they don’t do well with last minute change,” Broward Teachers Union President Anna Fusco said.

School officials, admitted that some parents were notified as late as Tuesday morning, forcing them to look for last-minute child care.

“(Teachers are) frustrated, concerned that there’s such minimal consideration, that there’s such (a) lack of communication. They really, you know, want to be in the know and just understand what exactly is happening,” Fusco said.
