Back to School start dates

PANHANDLE, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The countdown to get back to school is on and for some students that day comes sooner than for others.

Bay District Schools first day is Thursday August 18. For Gulf and Franklin County it's August 15.

August 11 is the start date for kids in Jackson County.

And August 10 is the start date for students in Walton, Okaloosa, Holmes, Calhoun and Liberty counties.

But due to heavy rain and flooding in the area, Washington County has pushed their start date back from August 10th to now start August 11th.
