The Baldwin County School District (BCSD) will delay dismissal for all of its schools by 45 minutes on Monday, August 21st as a precaution to the upcoming solar eclipse.
The new release times that day will be Elementary at 3:30 p.m. and middle and high schools at 4:00 p.m. Parents and guardians can expect a delay in both bus transportation and car rider pick-ups accordingly.
