Wake Year-Round Students Make Up Snow Day

Posted February 3, 2007

The sun was out on Saturday, but winter weather put a damper the day for plenty of Wake County students.

Snow flurries and slick roads led school officials to call off classes on Thursday. Students on Wake County's year-round calendar made up the day on Saturday.

School officials said attendance was slightly less than a typical school day. Some parents told WRAL that school on Saturday wasn't as bad as it sounds.

“They didn't have any plans today, so I don't think they cared,” said parent Karyn Wolf. “If we'd had major plans, it would have been a big deal to cancel our plans.”

Students on the traditional calendar will have their makeup day on Feb. 19.

    not that there is anything wrong with making a snow day up on the weekend, but since these were year-round students why not just make it up during their spring track out. Or eve tacking on a few days at the end of the year for bad weather, and if the children do not use them, then they just get out of school a few days earlier.

    When I was in school(years ago) if we missed a day we had to make it up on a Saturday-- no big deal except we hated to go to school-- but we surely do enjoy a day at home playing in the snow. Playing in the snow was worth having to go to school on a Saturday. Let it snow

    Why would it have been a big deal for that parent to cancel their plans for her child to attend Saturday School. I thought everything was done with the children in mind. I'm not sure about that either.
