posted by News

St. Paul Lutheran School will follow the lead of Polk County Schools in responding to the possible impact of Hurricane Matthew. We will use both e-mail and our text alert system to notify you of any decision impacting school or the upcoming Saturday conference soccer and volleyball tournament on Saturday.

Here is what the local school district is saying:

We continue to monitor Hurricane Matthew and are in regular contact with county emergency personnel. At this time, no decision has been made to close schools.

If a decision is made to close schools, we will communicate… We will also contact the local news media with this information.

Please stay tuned to these channels of communication for any updates. Thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, please pray for the safety of our fellow humans in Jamaica, Haiti, and any other area in Matthew’s path.

In His Children’s Service, Robert C. Boyd
