— Wake and Durham County school systems announced make-up days following a winter storm that closed schools Friday.

Traditional-calendar students in Wake and Durham County will now have classes on Monday, Feb. 15, which is President's Day. Wake County also announced traditional-calendar students will have class on March 24, to make up for Monday's snow day.

Wake County year-round students in tracks 1 and 2 will have classes on Jan. 30 and April 2, to make up for the two snow days. Students in track 3 will have school on April 2, and students in track 4 will have class on Jan. 30.

Those school days will both be on Saturday and be half days.

To make up for cancelling classes on Tuesday, traditional-calendar students in Durham will now have school on April 18. Year-round students will now have class on March 14, according to a calendar on the district's website. In addition, an early release day scheduled for Jan. 26 will now be a full day.

    It appears on the traditional calendar that both make up days were teacher work day's. (February 15th and March 24th)

    Wake does have built in time. The school board voted to use teacher work days/Saturdays first, then half days turned into full days, then the banked hours in that order to make up missed days. Wish it would have been the other way around.

    Wake does have time built into their calendar's already but the school board voted to use teacher work days (and Saturday school for year round) first, then half days of school converted into full days, and then if needed the banked hours for make up days.

    What happened to snow days being built into the yearly calendar? I thought they had learned that lesson already.
