School board removes May 23, 24 as makeup days

The Roanoke County School Board has approved the removal of May 23 and 24 as snow makeup days.  As a result of this change, the last day of the 2018-2019 school year will be May 22 as originally scheduled.  Schools will dismiss early on May 22.

“Despite a very wet fall and a cold winter, we determined we had accrued enough banked time that we did not need May 23 or 24 as makeup days,” said Roanoke County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ken Nicely.  “We wanted to make sure that we didn’t have any spring snowstorms before making this request of the board,” Nicely said.

Thus far, students have missed eight days this year due to weather-related closings.
