Schools Waitng for Waiver Approval to Enact Make up Days

Most area schools are waiting to see if a waiver is approved before they start invoking snow days into the calendar.

The state offered an opportunity for schools to submit a waiver to excuse two days of instruction due to the severe weather last week. Schools were forced to close as a state emergency declaration was enacted preventing travel on roadways on Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 6 and Jan. 7.

If the waiver is approved, school corporations will not need to utilize make up days to make up those missed days of instruction.

Eastern Pulaski and Culver Community Schools will be use Jan. 20 as a make up day and West Central Schools will use Feb. 17 as a make up day. All other school corporations are waiting for their waiver requests in order to determine a plan.
