Sebastian River High School

As Hurricane Dorian approaches Florida, Indian River County schools will be operating on an early release schedule for all students on Friday. Student absences will be excused.

All after-care programs and after-school activities are canceled. There is no schedule on when schools will reopen.

Open Houses

Open Houses will be canceled tonight 8/29 at Gifford Middle School, Sebastian River Middle School, and Sebastian River High School.

Vero Beach Elementary and Citrus Elementary will still have open houses tonight, as planned.

Because our schools serve as emergency shelters, if shelters are open, school is canceled.
