    Superintendent Thomas states “All Escambia County (FL) schools will dismiss an hour early, and after school activities have been canceled for Wednesday, October 28, 2020. The district will continue to monitor Hurricane Zeta, working along with the EOC, as the safety and welfare of our students and staff is paramount.”
