Snow Day Tracker

This Snow Day Tracker is provided to help parents keep track of changes to our announced 2018-2019 calendar. This presentation, however, is only a “best guess”, as to when will be the final day of school, as there are several factors that may affect how missed days are made up.

 

DISCLAIMERS:

1) Before any calendar changes are official, the Board must take formal action to amend the calendar. This is typically done in the spring of the year when snow emergencies are most likely over. While this page provides a fair guess, it should be noted that it could happen that the Board would approve something different than what is presented here.

 

2) Depending upon the severity of the winter, it does happen that the Legislature will make changes to attendance requirements that may affect the current school year. (At present, however, we are not expecting any such intervention from the Legislature.)

 

3) We have been approved for Non-Traditional instruction (NTI) / Snow Learning days. NTI days do not have to be made up at the end of the year. Not every day, however, that is canceled due to inclement weather will be a NTI day. Because our teachers are required to report to work on non-traditional instruction days, NTI days will typically be days that roads are navigable, but still may be problematic for our buses. If the roads are believed to be too dangerous for both our buses and our staff, it will be a “snow” day – which does have to be made up at the end of the year. Because we do not make up NTI days, it is critically important that students be responsible in completing their NTI assignments.

* At a special-called meeting held Monday, February 4, 2019, the Grant County Board of Education amended the 2018-2019 calendar as follows:  School will be in session February 18 and 19, 2019.  Attendance on these days will make up 2 of the 4 snow days Grant County Schools has incurred as of February 4, 2019.  The 3rd snow day will be made up Thursday, May 23, 2019, and the 4th snow day will be made up Friday, May 24.  Barring additional snow days, this makes the last day of school for students Friday, May 24, 2019.  Teachers would, then make up their February 19 Professional Development Day on Tuesday, May 28, and Closing Day for teachers would be Wednesday, May 29.   In the event additional snow days are incurred, the calendar will again need to be amended to accommodate the necessary make-up days.     
** At a special-called meeting held Monday, March 25, 2019, the Board amended the calendar as follows:  The last day for students will be Friday, May 24.  The last day for teachers will be May 30 (Closing Day). 
We are able to make Friday, May 24, our last day as our calendar and daily schedule was such that we met the state's day and hour requirements.
