Pinellas announces Hurricane Irma make-up day

Pinellas announces Hurricane Irma make-up day”

It was to have been a student holiday and a teacher work day as part of of a planned fall break.

Polk is one of 48 Florida counties impacted by Hurricane Irma that will provide free meals to students through the National School Lunch Program.

"While our leadership discussed the question at length, and even determined a list of designated inclement weather makeup days", Beasley continued, "our decision not to schedule makeup days is permitted as part of our Strategic Waiver School Systems agreement with the state".

23 will now be an instructional day.

One option is to use the three "hurricane makeup" days already on the school calendar, which are November 20, 21 and 22, just before Thanksgiving on November 23, Greene said.

Seminole County students missed a total of six days of school due to the storm.

The announcement was made Tuesday evening at the rescheduled Berkeley County Board of Education Meeting.

Superintendent Barbara Jenkins had already waived two days.

"We have the extra half-hour of instruction each day because of the additional referendum dollars that have been approved by voters every four years since 2002", Bowden added.

Wolf said the district may have enough instructional hours to cover the remaining two lost days.
