We parents never thought it would really happen! Every year we look at that fine print at the bottom the the academic calendar and say, "yeah, right, we'll never have enough snow days to actually lose break days." But, this year, it's happened. The current announcement on the District website:
Latest Snow Day Alters April Break Schedule
Due to the snow day on Monday, March 2, the Ridgewood Public Schools WILL BE OPEN on Monday, April 27, which would have been the first day of April Recess. Only two days were built into the 2008-2009 academic calendar for inclement weather; the policy calls to make up any additional snow days by taking from the April break, if necessary.
All we can do now is hope the snow is really over, because next on the chopping block will be Tuesday April 28.
