Mobile County Public Schools Officials announced that schools and offices will close on Wednesday: “Every day our district operates more than 500 buses to safely transport our students to and from school. As temperatures drop below freezing, this creates known and unknown problems with buses. I cannot allow students to stay at bus stops for too long waiting for buses at these temperatures. Additionally, since the district covers such a large geographic area, it is extremely difficult to handle all the unforeseen issues and safely implement a postponed school schedule.
“Therefore, due to these factors, all MCPSS schools and offices will be closed again on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, except for staff for a period of 12 months. All 12-month employees must report to work at 10 a.m. on Wednesday to have all campuses/facilities assessed for damage and/or weather-related issues.
“As of now, Thursday, January 18, 2024 will be a regular business day. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we make decisions that are in the best interest of the entire district.”
