Snow Make-up Days Set
Lexington School District Two students will have a full day of instruction on Wednesdays, March 26 and April 23. At a special meeting on March 6, the District's Board of Trustees voted to amend the District's school calendar to change Wednesday March 26 and April 23 from Cohort Early Release Days to full days of instruction to make up one of the days missed due to inclement weather in February. The District's high schools will not have a delayed start on these two Wednesdays.
The Board voted at their regular monthly meeting on February 27 to amend the calendar to designate March 28 as a snow make-up day also instead of Memorial Day. These measures taken by the Board will provide more instruction days prior to state PASS testing in May. March 28 had been designated as a Teacher In-service/Student Holiday.
Students and employees have already made up one snow day by attending school on President's Day, February 17, which had been designated as a school holiday.
