Pine-Richland schools will start 2 hours late on Wednesday with modified kindergarten schedule. However, that could change depending on the weather. If all the schools have no electricity because of the storm, for example, it wouldn't make sense to go. That's why the district said to check their website. Patch will keep you up to date too.
