Students in Greenville County schools will lose a four-day weekend in April and go an extra day at the end of the year to make up for three of the snow days taken last week. The days are built into the schedule in case there’s snow and become a bonus to students if weather doesn’t interfere.
Schools will be open Friday, April 1, Monday, April 4 and Thursday, June 2.
In addition, registration for kindergarten and first grade was moved to Wednesday and Thursday of this week and parents were able to submit Round 2 Magnet School applications until 12 p.m. on Thursday.
Susan Clarke, the communications coordinator for the school district, said they have not set a plan for the other two days that were missed, but they would be meeting with their principals to determine a solution.
The timing for other events was adjusted and the events already took place. The School Board Committee of the Whole Meeting originally scheduled on Tuesday, Jan. 11 was rescheduled for Jan. 18. And the athletic events that were planned for Friday, Jan. 14 were postponed until the next day.
If more days are canceled during the rest of the school year, GCS many adjust their plans accordingly.
