TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — Florida school districts have already canceled classes following damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.

According to announcements posted on district websites Saturday, school won’t be in session on Monday and Tuesday in Volusia and Flagler counties.

Officials in St. Johns County have canceled classes on Monday and say they’ll make a decision about Tuesday classes by noon Monday.

Duval County school officials say their goal is to open schools on Monday but it depends on road access, power, flooding and extent of damage to school buildings. A decision will be announced by Sunday afternoon.

A decision on reopening schools in Brevard County is expected on Sunday.
