White River sets make-up days for cancelled classes

White River School District students and teachers received an early season gift – three days without school – as nasty, winter weather shut down classrooms. Those three days stretched right into winter break, which began Monday and continues through Jan. 2.

White River School District students and teachers received an early season gift – three days without school – as nasty, winter weather shut down classrooms. Those three days stretched right into winter break, which began Monday and continues through Jan. 2.

That’s the good news. The bad news, if that’s the way to look at it, is those students and teachers will be making up those days.

Before the first canceled day was done, White River school district leaders knew what day students and teachers would be back in the classroom making up for the Dec. 17, Thursday and Friday snow closures.

The district placed snow days into its regular calendar, which is part of union negotiations, before the 2008-09 school year started.

White River’s school make-up days all fall at the end of the school year, in this case June 15, June 16 and June 17.
