Schools Making Decisions on Snow Day Make-ups


Plenty of snow accumulation cancelled school yet again in the Kankakee Valley on Monday.

Due to the number of snow days taken, some school corporations now have some decisions to make on just how they plan to make up even more days of class days. In Indiana, no fewer than 180 instructional days can be held.

Knox Community Schools allot four snow days during each school year calendar. The weekend’s snow storm required Knox to cancel classes on Monday. They have now used all of their snow make-up days, and any additional days missed will need to be added at the end of the year.

Oregon-Davis has already discussed using President’s Day, Good Friday, and May 1st as part of their snow days. Superintendent Greg Briles says Monday’s snow day still needs to be discussed with faculty. He says a decision should be made during a meeting at the end of this month.

North Judson-San Pierre Schools also says they will be adding days onto the end of the school year calendar. That means student’s last day will be May 29th.
