Yesterday night there were cold wind, mist, and black ice on the road, so my school district had its school start delayed for 2 hours this morning.
So if I were to write a school news article about this, which should be my choice? (This'll go in the body paragraph, not the headline)
- Our school district has issued a two-hour delay on school start time
- Our school district has issued two-hour delay on school start time
- Our school district has had its school start time delayed for two hours
- (Any better expression?)
If you'd also like to answer, should I use the definitive article "the" in front of those "school start time" above? I feel like I should not, because "time" is abstract. If I were to use "the," I should have used "...hours," am I wrong?
