Superintendent Dr. Paul A. Tisdale says Biloxi public schools leaders are continuing to monitor reports on Gustav.
“Right now, based on what we know, we don’t anticipate any announcements in terms of school closings,” Tisdale said. “School will be open as usual Friday, and we’ll make any announcements about Tuesday over the weekend. Keep in mind that Monday is a school holiday. Our individual principals will be sending out Connect-Ed messages to parents on Friday afternoon to give them the latest information.”
