(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Tropical Storm Hermine is impacting Manatee County schools. Officials have cancelled all Wednesday after-school activities, including 2016 Back-to-School Night, along with Thursday classes.

Classes are scheduled to resume Friday, and LRHS assistant principal Mike Mullen said it will be an “Even” day.

LRHS officials say they will reschedule Back-to-School Night and Thursday’s scheduled blood drive.  Blood drive coordinator and science teacher Maria Whalen said 167 donors had volunteered for the event.

“That’s double the number we’ve ever had in the past,” she said.
