After more than a week of being closed due to power outages, Charlotte County Public Schools (CCPS) reopened to students Tuesday, Feb. 23.

“We recognize that there are challenges to remote instruction due to electrical outages,” Mason said. “We encourage remote students and parents to reach out to their teachers to get caught up on missed assignments once their power has been restored.”

Students who have had their electricity restored should resume working on Google Classroom assignments.

CCPS Superintendent Robbie Mason closed schools and suspended virtual learning in an announcement on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Following the Valentine’s weekend ice storm, more than 5,000 citizens in Charlotte were without power.

As of Tuesday, Feb. 23, the number has dropped to 415.
