Board Approves Snow Day Make-Up Plan
The School Board considered four options which included not making up any additional time, making every Wednesday a regular school day (and conducting the Professional Learning Communities later in the same afternoon), adding 30 minutes to each school day after spring break, and adding days to the end of the school year.
After careful consideration the Board chose to add days, extending the student school year to a half-day on June 19. The last work day for teachers will be June 20.
