The Jessamine County School Board announced Monday that it will use Presidents Day, Feb. 16, as a make up day for one of the eight days classes were dismissed due to inclement weather this year.
Superintendent Lu Young said the board also had adjusted the remainder of the school calendar to make up for the other missed days.
"We will be having classes on Presidents Day, and also the board has put back in May 19, which we had thought was going to be a primary election day, but there are no elections slated for that day," Young said. "If we count those two days and then add the other six days in at the end of the year, we are looking at the last student day being Thursday, June 4 instead of Wednesday, May 27 as was originally planned."
Those plans could change because the Kentucky legislature has been discussing the possibility of giving school districts as many as five relief days, meaning they wouldn't have to be made up.
