Snow make-up days announced

School Board keeps Spring Break, 15 mins. to be added daily
The Alexander County Board of Education members voted 5-2 on Tuesday afternoon,
March 24, to restore the full week of Spring Break and use other days and times to
make up for inclement weather days, according to Renee Meade, Public Information
Officer for the school system.
School system administration proposed four options to make up the missed hours for
students and staff. The final decision was a vote for Option C, which includes using
March 27 as a student make-up day but not April 9 and 10, as originally indicated on
the published district calendar. The concession will eliminate early dismissals on
April 2, May 8, and June 10.
These actions combined still leave a deficit which will require an extension of the school
day by 15 minutes beginning April 13 and lasting through June 10.
School staff will work through June 17 to make up the three days missed on
February 17, February 19, and February 26.
