VERO BEACH — Flooding has forced the Indian River County School District to close both Vero Beach High School and Rosewood Magnet Wednesday.
Parents and students were informed that school will be cancelled at the Vero Beach High School main campus and Freshman Learning Center due to water intrusion issues that were experienced during the severe rain and flooding. All staff are also being instructed not to report for duty.
Rosewood Magnet Elementary’s classes have also been canceled Wednesday due to severe flood conditions in the area around the school campus. District staff determined that the conditions could pose a potential hazard during student drop off and pick up.
The remaining district schools will be open Wednesday and classes will begin at regularly scheduled times. All bus routes are on schedule to take place at their normal times as well.
District staff will continue to monitor the conditions at each school.
The staff is taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the conditions are safe before students return.
