The Okaloosa County School District announced on Tuesday evening that all school start times in Okaloosa County would be delayed 1 hour on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 due to severe weather.

A significant line of weather is scheduled to come through Okaloosa County early Wednesday morning, bringing the potential of damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour. The possibility of tornadoes can not 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 on Wednesday 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, according to the Okaloosa School District.

For that reason, the Okaloosa School District will be shifting all school start times later by one hour on Wednesday. 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 on Wednesday.
  • District staff will end their work day at the normal time.
