Putnam County Students Begin To Wind Down Year

Students in the Putnam County school system are now entering the final days of the 2009-2010 academic year. Nearly 800 seniors received their diplomas over the weekend, but for the rest of the students, classes will remain in session until Thursday of this week. Friday is scheduled as an administrative and teacher work day with the "final" day of school scheduled to be a two-hour day on Saturday with a 10 am dismissal. The school system calendar was thrown off a bit this year when officials had to scramble a bit to make up 14 snow days that they took because of the weather. That meant students went in early and came home late for a few weeks, and also attended school on May 4th, when classes were originally scheduled to be called off because of the election. The summer break won't last long, either. Classes resume in late July.
