All but Eight Palm Beach County Schools Will Be Open Wednesday
Bad news, kids not living in Loxahatchee or the Acreage.
After two straight days of no school -- and one half day of not being sure what what would be decided -- the Palm Beach County School District says that all but eight schools will be open Wednesday.
The schools that will remain closed on Wednesday are because of continued flooding problems in and around each respective school, according to district spokesman Nat Harrington.
The eight schools that will NOT be open Wednesday are:
Florida Panthers v Ottawa Senators
TicketsTue., Jan. 31, 7:30pm
Florida Panthers v Anaheim Ducks
TicketsFri., Feb. 3, 7:30pm
Florida Atlantic University Owls Men's Basketball vs. University of North Texas Mean Green Mens Basketball
TicketsThu., Feb. 9, 7:00pm
Florida Panthers v Los Angeles Kings
TicketsThu., Feb. 9, 7:30pm
Acreage Pines Elementary
Golden Groves Elementary
Loxahatchee Groves Elementary
Osceola Creek Middle
Pierce Hammock Elementary
Seminole Ridge High
Western Pines Middle
It took some time for the Palm Beach County School District to make a decision about Wednesday. There had even been a doctored photo floating around the internet of a screen grab of the district's website showing that all schools would remain closed.
Not so. Harrington confirmed to the Palm Beach Post that the photo was false. Nice try, photoshoppy kids!
Either way, teachers and students who don't attend the schools listed above are expected to go back tomorrow at the regular time.
