Hurricane Season - School Status

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Families of the Diocese of St. Augustine,

We continue monitoring Hurricane Idalia as she moves toward Florida.  Idalia became a major hurricane before making landfall in Florida.  We will be monitoring the storm as we are anticipating potential weather impacts to our area.  We will also be monitoring local and state Emergency Operations Centers as well as the Florida Department of Emergency Management.

We want you to know that decisions are not made lightly, and we know that a closure has ramifications for all our families and employees.  


Below you will find the status of all of our Catholic schools throughout the diocese.  Your school and the diocese will also make use of our ParentAlert System (email, voice messaging, and text messaging) for communicating information to all families.

Many public school districts across the state are closing a day early to set up shelters in their respective schools, but we are not designated as a potential shelter and do not have to close our schools as early.

Most of our schools will reopen on Thursday, August 31, 2023.  Please see the status sheet below for each school.


At this time all 17 counties of the Diocese are under a State of Emergency by the Governor.  Please monitor this website and watch for communications from your school directly.  We will be posting the status of all schools for Thursday on this website.

Be sure that your family has a hurricane plan ready and that you have prepped for the potential of this storm.

May God bless you and your families,

The Office of the Superintendent
