Snow Make-Up Days

Snow Make-Up Days
Posted on 02/20/2019
We know many of you are wondering when and how the multiple missed school days will be made up. We have missed six days of school due to snow, as of February 19. Once we are through the winter season and all impacts are known, we will be able to determine the extent of the schedule adjustments needed. Here is what we know now:

The make-up dates will not be taken from Spring Break. School breaks are bargained in the teachers’ contract. Since many staff and families have made plans, we must honor the breaks that are set in the school calendar.

We have dates for five snow make-up days that are announced at the beginning of the school year and listed in the school calendar. This year’s dates are June 21, May 10, June 24, 25, and 26, to be used in that order.

Governor Inslee declared a state of emergency on February 8, which gives school districts limited ability to obtain waivers. We will be exploring options with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, but must first get through the remainder of the winter season.

We understand the strain that closures, delays and early releases have had on our families and staff during this period of record snowfall, and we want to thank you for your patience and flexibility. We will communicate the final adjusted school calendar as soon as possible.
