MAKE-UP DAYS* Workdays, breaks and early release days may become student days if days are missed due to inclement weather. All days (except Sunday) between August 28 and June 8, no matter how they are designated on the school calendar MAY become make-up days. Be advised the week of Spring Break (April 2-6) is tentative and can be used as school make-up days. Any Saturday, particularly in January-April is subject to being changed to a school make-up day. Notice for make-up days may be short depending upon the timing and duration of the inclement weather. General statutes and State Board of Education policy concerning the school calendar will be followed. The make-up schedule will be announced as soon as possible after an inclement weather event has ended. STUDENT EARLY RELEASE DAYS Student Early Release Days: Students will be dismissed from school 2.5 hours earlier than the normal dismissal time. Lunch will be served before students dismiss. After school activities will begin at the regularly scheduled time.
