The Catholic Schools will follow the lead of Escambia County School District announcements regarding school closings during the hurricane season or for other weather related school closings. Announcements will be made on the radio (WYCT 98.7 FM, WCOA 1370 AM and JET 100.7 FM) and TV (WEAR Channel 3).
Although we close with Escambia County Schools, we re-open earlier because our schools are not used as shelters. Please stay tuned for news concerning Sacred Heart Cathedral School and our re-opening date (not other area Catholic schools as they may sustain damage that prevents them from re-opening when we do).
Listen for announcements that pertain to Escambia County, FLORIDA not Escambia County, ALABAMA – the towns of Brewton, Atmore and Flomaton.
If your house is significantly damaged or destroyed during a storm, if you evacuate and cannot return in a timely manner, etc. PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL THE SCHOOL and leave a message. We want to know that all of our families are safe.
- Sacred Heart Cathedral School
School Messenger: Parents and staff can expect to receive an automated phone message or text containing vital school closing and re-opening information.
Facebook: School closing and re-opening information will be posted
Escambia County Public Service Announcement: Be prepared. As this hurricane season approaches, Escambia County officials are reminding citizens that “the first 72 is on you,” a catchy way of saying that citizens should be equipped to provide for themselves, their families and their pets for at least three days following a major hurricane. State and federal help will not be on the scene and local resources will be spread thin.
