Greetings Fellow Titans –
Welcome back! After our unexpected “holiday” I know there will be a lot of schedule shuffling and late study nights in order to make up for last week. In addition to all of the class time missed, we also have sporting events, concerts, plays, and enrichment activities that will need to be squeezed into a normally tight building use calendar. At this point, information about make up days is as follows:
- State board of education rules allow “forgiveness” for up to four weather days during the school year, which means that students do not have to make up those days. However, six days of school already have been canceled in 2010-11 – five in January due to snow and ice, and one in December due to icy roads – which leaves two days for students to make up.
- The two make-up days for students will be Friday, March 11, which was set aside as a teacher workday, and Friday, April 22, which originally was a day off for both students and teachers.
- To meet contract requirements, teachers will have a workday on Monday, February 21, which was previously a student and teacher holiday, and also will work Friday, April 22. They will have two additional post-planning days on June 2 and June 3.
I realize that some of you may have already made plans for these long weekends and I do hope that this timely notification will help you with any necessary adjustments. I will attempt to send out additional copies of this newsletter to update information as it becomes available.
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have.
Ever Upward and Onward!
