As Hurricane Dorian trudges toward Florida, the Sarasota County School District has yet to make a decision on school closings.
District officials had Friday school operations proceed normally. Classes, after-school activities, and sports took place as planned.
District spokeswoman Tracey Beeker said the district hopes to reach a decision about school closings sometime on Sunday.
The district will issue a statement once it receives final direction from the county.
It has yet to be determined whether area schools will be opened as shelters during the storm.
In the event of an evacuation, information regarding shelters will be posted on the county's website and social media sites.
