Weather, Torunaments Change Activities at NM, EBF

Mother Nature dealt another blow to schools in Mahaska County Wednesday, Feb. 20. Eddyville Blakesburg Fremont Schools are close while North Mahaska and Oskaloosa are on a 2-hour delay as of 8:30 today. North Mahaska will not have an early out today. Dismissal will be at 3:15 p.m.

North Mahaska tournament games have caused a change in school activities. North Mahaska boys will face Grand View Christian at 7 p.m. Thursday in Pleasnatville. The game means the school board meeting will be rescheduled for Friday at 4 p.m. in the elementary conference room. Superintendent Angela Livezey said in an email Tuesday night, "In efforts of full transparency, it doesn’t make sense to hold a board meeting when a large number of patrons will be in attendance at the playoff game.  Thank you for your flexibility."

On Wednesday, Wednesday, Feb.27 North Mahaska will dismiss at 1 p.m. in efforts to get drivers and buses back to school to transport the pep band, players, and pep bus to Wells Fargo for the girl’s first round of sClass 1A tate basketball. North Mahaska faces West Hancock at 5 p.m.
