Crawford County schools join a growing list of districts that will let students out later than usual because of the solar eclipse.
The school system announced on Facebook Friday that students will be released from school one hour later than normal Aug. 21. The post says the eclipse will offer a “learning experience” for pupils leading up to the rare event.
It will be the first time in 38 years that a total eclipse will take place in the U.S.
Crawford joins Bibb, Bleckley, Baldwin and Putnam counties as some of the Middle school districts that have changed their dismissal times for Aug. 21.
