The Edmonson County School Board has completed the final schedule of the 2015-16 school year. Local schools have missed eight days due to inclement weather, nine if you count President's Day, but since there was originally not supposed to be school on that day, it isn't officially counted.
Several have had concerns and questions as to whether or not spring break would be affected. If you've made plans for spring break (April 4 through April 8) you'll be happy to know none of the days will made up during spring break.
According to Director of Pupil Personnel Brian Alexander, the last day of school was initially slated for a half day on Wednesday, May 18th. That has now been changed to Friday, May 27th.
The missed days will be made up May 18, 19, 20, and May 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27. Teachers will use May 17th (election day) as a staff day (still no school for students), and teachers' last day will be May 31. Memorial Day will be observed for teachers on Monday, May 30th.
ECHS Graduation has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 28th at 1pm.
"Saturday afternoon has really worked well for graduations in the past," said Alexander. "More people had rather have them in the afternoon than at night, and the board feels like this is best."
