MIAMI - After getting a two break thanks to what was Hurricane Ian, it's back to school in South Florida and the Keys.

Miami-Dade Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jose L. Dotres said that based on the latest information and the inspection for safety of all school sites, all school facilities will reopen on Friday. All adult education classes, after-care programs, athletics, and school activities will resume as well.

"We anticipate all school campuses will be open. In the event a campus is not ready to reopen, the principal will alert the school community by 5 p.m. today (Thursday)," she said in a video statement.

Cartwright noted that several activities, including athletic events, have been rescheduled.
