Inclement Weather Make Up Days
Inclement Weather Make Up Days
Posted on 12/09/2018
Friday, October 19 Make Up Day

We will use Friday, January 18, 2019 to make-up the day missed on Monday, December 10, due to winter weather.

The district is required by law to make up the day missed due to weather. In order to allow our high school teachers time to make the transition to the second semester and previously planned professional development activities to take place, the district will operate on a modified early release schedule on Friday, January 18. Students will be released at the times below.

Elementary School 11 a.m.
Middle School 11:35 a.m.
High school 12:40 p.m. to meet state required instructional time.

The education of our students is our highest priority and the district will attempt to recover all lost instructional time when possible. Designated make up days can be found on the district calendar by clicking here. It is our district policy to use the next scheduled make-up day to recover missed time.

Per state law (S.C. Code Ann. §59-1-425), all districts must set aside three days in the annual academic calendar to be used as make up days. In the event of inclement weather, these days must be made up.

Make-up days are not impacted by the declaration of a “State of Emergency.” All districts must make up a minimum of three days before any options to forgive missed days can be used.
