NHC schools release make up schedule for days missed during winter storm

Posted: Updated:

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Spring break is not in jeopardy for students in New Hanover County. School officials found a way to make up the four snow days without holding classes on Saturdays or during spring break.

"We listened to the community and this make up schedule reflects the most effective options available to us," said Superintendent Dr. Tim Markley. "Everyone emphasized the importance of restoring the instructional time and many asked us to avoid taking time away from spring break. This schedule still exceeds the 1025 instructional hours required by the state."

The following is the make up schedule for New Hanover County Schools.

Traditional Calendar:

Friday, February 14, 2014 will become a full instructional day. (Previously, this was an early release day - Staff Development Day.)

Friday, March 28, 2014 will become a full instructional day. (Previously, this was an early release day - Staff Development Day.)

Thursday, June 12, 2014 will become a instructional full day. (Previously, this was an early release day and the last day of school.)

Friday, June 13, 2014 will be added to the school calendar. (This will be an early release day and the last day of school. The district's testing schedule will be changed to reflect the new end of the school year.)

Year Round Calendar:

Friday, February 14, 2014 will become a full instructional day. (Previously, this was an early release day - Staff Development Day.)

Friday, March 28, 2014 will become a full instructional day. (Previously, this was an early release day - Staff Development Day.)

According to a spokesperson for New Hanover County Schools, should any other make up days become necessary, those days will be made up on Saturdays with the dates to be determined.
