As a precautionary measure, Owego Apalachin schools will dismiss early today (Thursday, April 28) due to expected flooding in and around the OA community.
Dismissal times are as follows:
* Owego Apalachin Middle School will dismiss at 12:50 p.m.
* Owego Free Academy will dismiss at 1 p.m.
* Owego and Apalachin elementary schools will dismiss between 2 and 2:15 p.m.
Parents and care-givers should make arrangements to meet their children as they arrive on the bus.
According to the National Weather Service, heavy rain storms east of Owego are causing the Susquehanna River to rise rapidly. We may see the river reach flood stage in Owego by mid-afternoon.
