It's been nearly two months since our community was devastated by Hurricane Michael. Countless individuals and organizations from across the country have come together to volunteer and assist those in need after the storm left many without homes or possessions. One of the greatest impacts Michael had were on our schools - many across the region sustained heavy damage, and those that faired well were used as community shelters and volunteer stations.
So what about the students who attend these schools? Many of the Bay District Schools here in the 850 had to adjust their schedules in order to accommodate both students and members of the community in need, resulting in shorter class times, and odd meeting hours.
Today we are happy to announce that Panama City Beach schools will be returning to their normal schedules! Due to the progress being made and the countless hours of volunteer work, it is now possible for our young students to return to their schooling as normal and progress through the rest of their school year.
Officials with the district have announced that the Arnold High School campus will be re-opening for students on Monday, December 10th. All beach schools will be back to their normal, pre-storm start and end times.
