Schools in Attica, Peloponnese, western Greece to stay shut on Friday

All schools in Attica will stay shut on Friday at the orders of the region’s governor Rena Dourou, ahead of the arrival of a Mediterranean hurricane, or Medicane, that is expected to reach Greece on Thursday night. The decision was taken as a precaution and to limit the movement of school children outdoors to a minimum, due to the extreme and dangerous weather conditions expected to prevail.

Orders for all schools to stay shut have also been issued by the Peloponnese regional authority for Corinth, Argolis, Arcadia, Messinia and Lakonia and by the Western Greece Region for Achaia, Ilia and Aitoloakarnania.
