Winter Weather Forces District To Extend School Year By Three Days

Thanks to all the recent snow days, the last day of school for the district is now June 27.

The Board of Education voted to extend the school year by three days at the Feb. 20 meeting.

The district has used 10 snow days – except for Elizabeth Avenue School, which has used 11 – said interim schools Superintendent Eveny Pagan, forcing the district to take back some vacation days and extend the school year.

“We will use April 14 and extend the school year by three days … to preserve spring break,” she said.

“If we have more snow days, we’ll have to use spring break days,” Pagan said.

The alternative, Pagan said, is to hold classes on Saturdays.

The district must be done with the school year by June 30, Pagan said.

Under the new schedule, April 15 will be a minimum session day for Elizabeth Avenue students.

June 18, 19 and 20 and now full-session days, and June 23 and 24 are now full days for Pre-K trough 8th Grade and minimum session days for Franklin Township High School students.
