Both Decorah and North Winneshiek school districts will have a two-hour late start Friday, Nov. 9.
The late start is due to the late start time of the Decorah semi-final football game at the UNI-Dome Thursday evening.
In a press release from the Decorah School District, Superintendent Mike Haluska explained because the game is being televised statewide, "TV timeouts" will be part of the game.
"This means the game could very well not end until 11:15 p.m., meaning students and staff attending the game may not likely return home until after 1 a.m.," said Haluska.
