An item discussed at the February Board of Education meeting was the timeline to make-up the 2 snow days (January 7th and February 2nd). The following is our plan, assuming we have no additional snow days:
Since we have 175 student attendance days in our calendar and ISBE requires 174 we will not make up 1 day and amend the calendar for this year to 174 student attendance days. That takes us to 1 make-up day. Students will attend school on Monday, April 20th rather than using this date as a Teacher Institute Day. This will allow the final day of school to remain June 4th, summer school will begin on June 8th, and the final day of summer school will be July 3rd.
