Snow Days Adding Up; Important School Calendar Update; as of 2/14

Through Thursday, February 14th, we’ve now missed nine (9) days of school due to inclement weather and now the Friday before Memorial Day, May 24th will be the Last Day of School.  As explained below, this will remain the Last Day of School as Summer School begins on May 28th, the tuesday after Memorial Day.  Current statute requires a school district to schedule six (6) days of planned make-up days when approving a school year calendar.  Further, the statute requires the school district to make up half of the missed days of school after the six planned make-ups until the district has made up ten (10) days of school. 


The no-school days due to inclement weather on Wednesday, February 6th, Thursday February 7th, and Friday February 8th were the 6th, 7th, and 8th days of missed school respectively for the current school year.  As Friday, Feb.8th was the 8th day missed, it doesn't have to be made-up according to statute. The inclement weather no-school day on Tuesday February 12th, was the 9th day of school missed and will have to be made up according to statute. The recommended day for Make-up#9 is Monday, March 11th.  If we miss an 11th or 13th day of school (8th,10th, 12th, 14th and beyond are forgiven, see the chart below), the recommendation will be that school will be in session on the following no-schools days, in this order:  March 8th, April 22nd.  These are currently no-school days built into the calendar.  This amendment to the school calendar will be an action item for the Board of Education at the regular monthly meeting in February.  

Here’s the current status of make-up days according to current year statutory requirements.
