This is an update that the district has identified two weather “make-up” days to address the days students missed from school due to Hurricane Dorian. The days are:
- Monday, October 21, 2019.
- Friday, January 17, 2020.
These dates are reflected in the updated 2019-20 school calendar available here.
Background: The 2019-20 calendar approved by the Board last school year included five weather days: Oct, 21 2019; Jan. 17, 2020; June 1, 2020; June 2, 2020; June 3, 2020. These days were identified as make-up days in the event severe weather prevented students from attending school and days were required to be made up.
Hurricane Dorian resulted in three lost days. Only two days – Oct. 21, 2019 and Jan. 17, 2020 – were identified as needed make-up days. The updated calendar will have sufficient time to meet the total instructional minutes required by the state without using a third make-up day.DOri
