Band and football practices continue despite hurricane

School is to be canceled Friday, Oct. 7 due to the category four hurricane heading towards Florida. Students rejoiced around 1:00 pm this afternoon when Hillsborough County Public Schools sent out a tweet notifying all students that school would in fact be closed on Friday, extending the already long weekend. The tweet also said that the hurricane will not directly hit Hillsborough county but that it is “expected to get tropical storm force winds with gusts of 40-50 mph” adding the hashtag #StaySafe

School will resume Tuesday, Oct. 10 after the Columbus Day holiday.
