We've had some questions about using minutes versus days when making up inclement weather days as well as "Flexible Learning Options". Here is additional information regarding those topics:
The district calendar committee will continue to examine how we handle make up days. It’s a complicated issue that is also tied to teacher contract days. For now, anticipate practice remaining the same – if we miss a day of school, we’ll make it up at the end of the year. Any changes will be communicated through all official district channels.
At this time we are not looking at flexible learning options on snow days. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is just now beginning to look at this possibility. We will await more official guidance on this practice in future years.
