Recreation centers in Hillsborough County will be open on Tuesday for parents who need childcare due to school closures, county and city of Tampa officials announced.

Hillsborough public schools will be closed Tuesday due to Hurricane Dorian.

The program is open to all county residents with children ages 5 to 14. Fees will be waived for the day for children that do not regularly participate in the recreation program.

For children already registered, it will be considered a normal camp day.

Parents will need to complete a form at the center before dropping off their child, and will need to provide a lunch and snack for their child for the day.
