POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Students in Broward County were back in class Friday morning after inclement weather caused colleges and schools in Broward to close out of an abundance of caution.

After a day of cleanup in Broward County, schools like Pompano Beach Middle, were dry once again and clear of debris.

“They said the debris and stuff was a danger to the kids, but it was hectic,” said Karen Young, a Pompano Beach Middle parent. “Keeping them home, we love them to get an education at the middle school.”

A tree on Thursday fell on top of the school.

While the school experienced flooding, parents said it is something that has happen before.

“Everything it rains, my kids are telling me that certain parts of the school start to flood, that they aren’t even allowed to walk to their certain classes because it’s flooded out,” said Louie Garcia, a Pompano Beach Middle parent.

Several other schools suffered damage on the inside. Nova High School in Davie had water leaking from the ceiling and Western High School’s auditorium was flooded.

Standing water was also a common sight at most schools.

Western High’s baseball field was flooded, as well as the football field at American Heritage in Plantation.

In Fort Lauderdale, schools looked better as well.

At North Side Elementary, some debris still covered the sidewalks, but parents are glad the area is no longer underwater.

“I see that the water is residing,” said Angie Richards, a North Side Elementary parent.

All the issues caused by relentless rainfall Wednesday night, prompted Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Peter Licata to shut down schools on Thursday.

Over in Miami-Dade County, schools remained open Thursday.

Parents and students were seen driving through flooded roads to make.

One school, American Senior High, dealt with power outages. Students were dismissed from the school early.

For students that missed classes on Thursday in Miami-Dade County, they will not be marked as absent.

According to officials, classes and after school activities in Broward County will resume as normal.
