Nash-Rocky Mount schools will make up hurricane days before holidays

Posted November 9, 2016

— Students in Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools will make up two of five instructional days lost to Hurricane Matthew before their Christmas holiday, the board of education decided on Monday.

The board decided to forgive three of the five days based on the number of instructional hours in the school day. Public school students must receive 185 days or 1,025 hours of instruction every year.

Students will make up the other two days on Dec. 19 and 20, with early release on Dec. 20.

    I expect we'll hear some whining about this. I wonder why they didn't schedule one day for November and one in December instead of two back-to-back so near Christmas.
    But on the other hand, it may give mom & dad time to get holiday things together easier with kiddies in school.
