If school is closed for inclement weather or other emergencies school will be is session in the following order: May 27, May 23, April 23, April 22, April 21, March 19.
If several emergency closing days are used before Nov, 27 and/or the Feb. and or Spring recess, the Board of Education may use Nov. 27 and/or the Feb. recess and/or Spring recess as make-up days. If March 19 is an emergency make-up day, Superintendent’s Conference Day will be scheduled for June 27.
Make-up days were on the minds of administrators when the calendar was devised. The district lost a total of six days this school year due to Hurricane Sandy plus a snow day due to the Feb. blizzard.
