PROVO — Provo schools will start two hours later than usual on Wednesday because of the fast-moving storm that moved into Utah Tuesday evening.
The Provo City School District announced the late start also means school buses will collect students at “below bench pickup” locations. Pickup times will also be two hours later than usual.
“This means that school will start two hours later than normal at each school. For example, if your school starts at 8:30 on a normal day, it will start at 10:30 tomorrow. Schools will still release at their normal times,” the district said on its Facebook page.
There will be no half-day kindergarten, preschool or other midday or after-school programs in the district. Athletics — practices, games or competitions — will take place as scheduled as of press time. Anyone with questions is asked to contact schools directly.

The district said:
As always, parents are encouraged to do what they feel is best and safest when sending their students to school. Please communicate with your school if your student will be late or absent.
