Storm Make-up Days Announced

Thursday, October 20, 2016 - 10:38am

Members of the Flagler County School Board accepted the proposed revised calendar put forth by the school district’s Calendar Committee. Changes were needed to make up for days missed during Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew. In all, students missed five days from the two storms.

Previously, October 14th was used as the first of these make-up days. This was originally a Teacher Workday. An effort was made to make up these lost days within the first semester. To that end, students will now go to class November 21st and 22nd. These days were originally part of a week-long break surrounding Thanksgiving Day.

Additionally, March 10th and April 14th will now be school days. They were Teacher Workdays on the previous calendar.

The Calendar Committee went through every possible scenario in proposing these changes to the Board. It was felt this option offered the best solution of giving meaningful classroom time to our students and meeting the mandated amount of time required for courses.
