KANSAS - As of Monday, Lakota Local Schools had accumulated 14 calamity days, yet is hoping not to have to extend the school year
Superintendent Jon C. Detwiler informed board members at the monthly meeting the state allows five calamity days each academic year. With the "blizzard bags" which were provided to students to work independently at home, three additional days were accounted for. The students will be attending class on Monday's Presidents' Day holiday accounting for the ninth day. Spring break has been shortened by two days, one at either end of the scheduled break, thus bringing the total to 11 of the 14 days to be accounted for.
Detwiler is hoping the state will grant additional days, which is being discussed as likely.
"If all goes well, we might not have to add any days to our calendar," Detwiler said. "Graduation dates will not be moved."
He noted if days need to be added to the school year due to any further closings, seniors will not have to attend class after graduation as those days (if any) are expected to be waived.
