Information from Wissahickon School District:
The Wissahickon School District experienced a loss of 4 school days; October 29, 2012 through November 1, 2012 due to Hurricane Sandy. The District calendar accounts for 184 student days, of which 2 are built in for weather related emergencies. Our current calendar procedure for inclement weather and/or emergencies reads accordingly:
“If schools are closed for inclement weather or emergencies, make-up day #3 will be February 15 if the closure is before that date. Subsequent make-up days will be June 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28. If fewer than 2 days are used for inclement weather, school will not be held on June 18 and/or June 19.”
Therefore, in order to make up the loss of 2 days, the following calendar revisions will be in effect for the 2012-13 school year:
- A regular school day will be scheduled for students on Friday, February 15, 2013.
- The last student day for the 2012-13 school year will be Thursday, June 20, 2013.
Please make note to these calendar changes for your planning purposes.
