RE: Inclement Weather Makeup Days
Due to the possibility of additional inclement weather this school year, we wanted to share our plan for ensuring we meet the required 1025 instructional hours for the year. As of today, we have 10.2 hours over the needed 1025. A school day includes 6.1 instructional hours (lunch and time to pass between classes is not considered for instructional hours). Therefore, we could miss approximately 1.5 days and still meet our requirements. While we hope they are not needed, the following days will be utilized if necessary:
The two early release days on March 20 and May 8 will both become full, instructional days to gain 4.0 hours.
February 18 will change from a required teacher workday to an instructional day to gain 6.1 hours.
April 22 will change from an optional teacher workday to an instructional day to gain 6.1 hours.
Should any of the above changes need to be implemented we will be sure to let you know so you can adjust your plans accordingly. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding our inclement weather procedures or this notice and thank you for your support!
