On December 11 the Board of Education approved a modified School Calendar for 2013 in order to make-up the 6 school instructional days that were lost during Hurricane Sandy.

1. Three of the make-up days will be made up during the February vacation.  February 19, 20 and 21 will become regular school days for all students and staff members.

2. The time required to make-up the equivalent of three additional days will be accomplished by extending the regular school day schedule.  The starting and ending times for each school will be extended by 15 minutes each, for a total of 30 minutes per day.  This extended schedule will begin on Monday, January 7, 2013 and end on Friday, March 8, 2013.   A revised school schedule will be published by each school principal.
Hopefully, no more school days will need to be cancelled for the remainder of the year.  However, should it be necessary to make up any “snow days”, it will require the loss of days from the Spring vacation period, starting with April 1 and March 25.
