Plans Being Considered To Make Up Snow Days

With the Putnam County school system taking another snow day today, school officials are now trying to decide how they can start making up the lost time. Putnam County has 13 snow days built into their calendar, but all thirteen of them were used up as of Wednesday. State law mandates at least 180 instructional days for students, so the local school board must decide where any missing days will be scheduled for make-up. Their options include holding classes on Saturdays; eliminating or shortening an already scheduled Spring Break; or adding the days on to the end of the school year.
