Gainesville schools won’t make up days lost to Tropical Storm Irma
Teachers, staff to get paid emergency leave
Gainesville School Board Office
Gainesville school officials said the district won’t make up five days lost last month to Tropical Storm Irma but will still compensate school personnel with paid emergency leave days. Schools closed from Sept. 11-15, and more than 8,000 Gainesville school students stayed home when Irma toppled trees, closed roads and knocked out power to thousands of households throughout Hall County.
