Northwood has something BIG coming soon! Here is a little clue. We can't wait to include all our families in our big event!
All Okaloosa County Schools will be start one hour later than normal tomorrow Wednesday, Jan 25. Northwood gates will open at 8:55. Daycare will begin at 7:00 AM instead of 6:00 AM.
A significant line of weather is scheduled to come through Okaloosa County early tomorrow morning bringing the potential of damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour. The possibility of tornadoes cannot be ruled out. This weather system containing thunderstorms will pass through quickly according to Patrick Maddox, Director of Emergency Operations for Okaloosa County.
The timing of the weather has the potential to impact bus transportation tomorrow morning during the first tier of school bus transportation. High winds will exist, and students may be waiting at bus stops in very inclement weather.
For that reason, we will be shifting all school start times later by one hour tomorrow. All schools are impacted because of our tiered bus system. Since the first round of buses will be one hour late to the early start schools, that means that bus transportation to the second and third tier schools will be an hour late as well.
Schools will end at their normal time tomorrow. District staff will end their work day at the normal time.
