Deer Lakes announces inclement weather make-up dates
Like most schools throughout the region, the recent spate of weather-related school cancellations will force Deer Lakes School District to make up those lost days of instruction.
Last week, the bitter cold temperatures and icy roadways conspired to cause the school district to cancel school on Wednesday, Jan. 30 and Thursday, Jan. 31, as well as Friday, Feb.1. That is in addition to the weather-necessitated school cancellation on Nov. 16,
Under the revised schedule, Deer Lakes students will now have classes on Feb. 18 (Presidents Day) as well as April 18, 22 and 23. The latter dates were originally listed as part of the school district’s annual spring break. However, they will now be treated as school days. Deer Lakes will not have classes on Friday, April 19.
The make-up dates were pre-approved by the school board at last February’s school board voting meeting and are posted on the district’s website throughout the school year under “Calendar Overview.”
Should your student need to miss any of the newly added school days, please contact their building principal to make any necessary arrangements.
