  • Board of Education “forgives” snow day

     

    Just in case you are wondering about the one snow day from January that had not been made up, no need to wonder anymore. The Board of Education voted during its April 10 meeting to “forgive” the day. There are enough instructional hours remaining in the school calendar; therefore, students do not have to make up the day. You may recall that students missed school on January 9 and 10 because of inclement weather, and January 24 was used to make up one of the days.
