In light of the recent inclement weather, with snow and ice putting students out of the classroom for five days, the Muhlenberg County School Board approved amending the school calendar to begin addressing the loss of instructional days at its Thursday evening meeting at the Central Office.
Upon the recommendation of Superintendent Robby Davis and Director of Pupil Personnel Lee Freeman, the Board approved utilizing the following days as instructional days: Jan. 26, Feb. 16, Feb. 19 and March 12.
Freeman told the Board it would likely be late March or early April before the final determination of remaining make-up days — the system also lost Aug. 21 for Eclipse Day — but as it currently stands, the last day for students would be May 23, although there will be no school on May 22, which is Election Day.
