So far, Lonedell will make up its snow days on two previously scheduled four-day winter weekends, a day in March and at the end of the planned school year.
According to the district’s calendar, students now will be in class on Friday and Monday, Jan. 17 and 20; Friday and Monday, Feb. 14 and 17; Friday, March 14; and Wednesday and Thursday, May 21-22. The last day of school originally was scheduled to be Tuesday, May 20.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated on Jan. 20 while Feb. 17 is Presidents Day.
Superintendent Jen Ulrich said she is unsure whether the state will consider forgiveness of makeup days if they continue to pile up. She said according to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, students are supposed to be in school for 174 days in an academic year.
“We’ll see what happens,” she said.
Before this past week’s snowstorm, Lonedell missed two days of classes in early December because of inclement winter weather.
According to the R-XIII School District calendar, its five makeup days will be Monday, Jan. 20, Friday, Feb. 14, Monday, Feb. 17, Monday, March 17, and Wednesday, May 21.
Before the onslaught of winter weather hit, St. Clair also was scheduled to end classes for the year on May 20.
St. Clair missed one day of classes near the beginning of December because of inclement weather.
If inclement weather continues to force cancellations this winter, both districts could end up being in school past Memorial Day, May 26.
