For the first time in several years, Logan County school students may get to enjoy their full two-week spring break.
The first week of spring break is usually used as makeup days, but with the mild winter the county has been enjoying that hasn’t been an issue this year.
So far, Logan County has missed just one day for snow. That came on Friday, January 6.
The plan was to use one of the spring break days to make up that snow day, but the Logan County school board voted this week to amend the school calendar, which resulted in giving students and teachers the full two weeks of spring break.
The last day of school in Logan County is still scheduled for May 19th.
“We were able to do this because we exceeded minimum number of days and hours,” superintendent Paul Mullins said.
There is still a few weeks of winter left, so that plan could still change based on the weather, but with temperatures expected next week to reach into the 70s, the possibility of more snow days for the schools is increasingly unlikely.
Russellville Independent schools has missed three days this year, but only one for snow. Russellville schools closed Thursday and Friday last week because of a high amount of student sickness.
They are also currently on schedule to get out of school the same day as the county, on May 19. The three days Russellville will miss are being made up on Feb. 17, March 17 and April 14.
