They predicted a very busy hurricane season and so for they have been right. Close on the heels of Harvey, Hurricane Irma is ready to strike the mainland soon!
The forecast models are very uncertain about the path Irma will take. Every thing looks very uncertain except that Irma is going to be a very powerful hurricane (probably Category 4).
We will keep you posted about the new developments regarding Irma.

We have decided not to pick up the after school students from J.C Mitchell, Somerset and Boca Elementary schools on Monday. The parents have the following options:
- You can leave the kids at Footprints in the morning
- You can pick up the kids at the above schools by around 12:30 PM and drop them off at Footprints
The eclipse starts at 1:17 PM and ends at 4:20 PM. During this time, the kids will stay inside the school.
You can pick up your kids between these times from Footprints, but you are doing this at your own risk. They suggest not to look at the Sun during the above times with a naked eye. One needs special glasses to look at the Sun during the eclipse.
Picking up your kids:
So, if you come to Footprints during 1:17 PM to 4:20 PM, you are doing this at your own risk, and we are not responsible for anything that happens.
While the kids are inside, we are going to make sure they don’t look outside and all the blinds will be down to insure that the kids are safe.
Your kids safety are our utmost concern. We have made this decision with the safety of your kids on our mind
