Out of an abundance of caution, and based on updated weather data that has changed from yesterday’s Emergency Management briefing, all Walton County Schools will dismiss 90 minutes early today, Wednesday April 10th due to a severe weather system that is moving faster than anticipated. The 90 minute early dismissal includes all students and employees. To give just one example for students, if your child’s bus typically leaves school at 2:30 p.m., for today, that bus would dismiss at 1:00 p.m. This is just an example. If you need help understanding the early 90 minute dismissal, please call your child’s school. In addition to the early dismissal, all after school activities, including tutoring, athletics, and SPICE, are canceled. Based on data from Emergency Management and additional weather resources, severe weather is expected in Walton beginning in the late afternoon and lasting through the early morning on Thursday, April 11th. At this time, schools are anticipated to be back in session tomorrow, but please stay connected with our website and social media outlets in case there are any changes. As always, safety is our number one priority. Everyone stay safe!

As you may know, a total solar eclipse is on the horizon Monday, April 8th. The weather forecast shows partly cloudy skies the entire day and the panhandle will only experience 70-80% coverage during the eclipse. The whole event will last about two hours. At this time, there will be no alterations to school or transportation schedules. However, while under our care you can expect students will be guided not to look directly at the sun. The safety of our students is always our top priority. We ask that parents and guardians also speak to their children about avoiding direct eye contact with the eclipse. This is an incredible opportunity for science to come to life in real-time for our students, and if teachers can do so safely, they may use this as a teaching tool. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.
