Having now missed three school days this week (Jan. 27-28-29) that will need to be made up and weather/roads much improved ... I'd bet school will be back in session Friday. The three built in "snow days" had already been used (Dec. 15-16-17, 2008) so the school board will have to determine when the days will be recovered. The photo shows crews clearing the parking lots and roadways near the middle school and I'm sure the same is occuring at the other campuses today. -- Ted -- Thursday Jan 29, 2009 2pm -- Original School Calendar (April 2008)
