This week's poll question on our homepage asks: "How should the school system make up snow days?" Well, the school board met in regular session last night on Monday, March 9, 2015, and amended the school calendar for the current 2014-15 school year.
The Board approved for the last day for students to be May 22. Additionally, students will not be session on May 19 (primary election day), and Spring Break remains March 30 - April 3.
"Having missed 8 days, I think we're very fortunate that we're going to able to get the kids out as early as we are," said Brian Alexander, Director of Pupil Personnel. "The students are going to be finished before Memorial Day, and with the historical weather that we've had since February 16th, we're really fortunate to be able to have an amended calendar that allows us to do that without affecting Spring Break, where many people may have already made plans."
