Correction: There will not be school on March 25.
Although there was a snow day on March 8, the Nyack School District Board of Education will not be using March 25 as a snow make up day.
In a letter sent home in December to parents from Superintendent Jim Montesano, the district put out a revised calendar for 2012-13 complete with adjustments for the week lost to Hurricane Sandy. That letter is attached to this article.
"We did have one additional day built into it," said Montesano, adding that because of that additional day, they will not need to make up the March 8 snow day.
Despite the snow day, the district still has the required 180 days needed for state aid.
"If we needed to use one more day, it would come off the first day of spring recess, which is March 25," said Gail Fleur, Communications Director of Nyack School District.
Here's a look at what other school districts are doing:
- Pearl River: April 1 and March 25 were designated as the next two vacation days that could be changed into regular class days in the case of more snow. Due to the snow day Friday March 8, Pearl River Schools will be in session April 1.
- Nanuet will not be making up the March 8 snow day because it still will meet the 180-day requirement for state aid.
What are your thoughts on this make up day with it being part of Spring Recess?
