For the second time this year, some Central Coast schools will close as a precaution due to the latest storm.

Paso Robles Unified, Templeton Unified, Atascadero Unified, Coast Unified, San Luis Coastal, Cayucos Elementary, and Guadalupe Union school districts have announced that schools will be closed on Friday.

Old Mission School and Mission Prep in San Luis Obispo and Coastal Christian School in Pismo Beach will also be closed.

Cuesta College campuses will be closed, as well.

On Thursday, County Superintendent of Schools James Brescia recommended all schools within San Luis Obispo County either modify or close due to safety concerns for students, families and employees.

The decision on whether to close or modify schedules is ultimately up to each school district.

Schools in the Lucia Mar Unified School District were already scheduled to be closed on March 10 for a staff work day.

As of 5 p.m. on March 9, the Santa Maria-Bonita School District and Santa Maria Joint Union High School District both planned to open schools as usual on Friday.

Lompoc Unified informed families that schools will be open on Friday.

Many local schools also closed for at least one day following the Jan. 9 storm.
