Snow days affecting school calendars

Spring break may be shorter, end of school year later



Students with Anderson Community Schools will be attending classes on Monday, originally scheduled as a day off for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, and there will be classes on Friday, March 21, the day preceding spring break.

Should ACS have to make up a third day, interim superintendent Tim Edsell said classes will take place on Monday, Feb. 17, which is President’s Day.

Joe Buck, superintendent of the South Madison Community School Corp., said there are seven make-up days built into the 2013-14 school calendar.

Buck said students will be required to attend classes on MLK’s birthday, President’s Day and the first five days of the two-week spring break.

Bobby Fields, superintendent for the Frankton-Lapel Community Schools, said Thursday the school system has applied for a three-day waiver from the Indiana Department of Education.

“The county was still under a travel restriction for three days,” Fields said. “It would not have been legal for our bus drivers to be on the roads.”

He said Frankton-Lapel students will be attending classes on President’s Day, with any remaining make-up days scheduled for the end of the school year, set to start on Wednesday, May 28.

Alice Johnson, superintendent of the Alexandria Community Schools, said all snow make-up days will be added to the end of the school year. The last day of school had been scheduled to be Tuesday, May 27. Alexandria students will be in school Monday and on President’s Day.
