3 Schools will Have Make Up Day Feb. 19
Pines Lake, Theunis Dey, and George Washington will be in session to make up for an extra day they were closed following Superstorm Sandy.
Pines Lake and Theunis Dey elementary schools and George Washington Middle School will be in session on Tuesday, Feb. 19.
The schools were scheduled to be closed for winter recess but will be open to make up an extra day they were closed for after Superstorm Sandy.
District officials sought imput from parents on what day the schools should be open. Good Friday, March 29, was one of the days parents had the option of recommending. Some parents took offense to the idea of ever having school on one of the high Christian holy days.
Superintendent Ray Gonzalez said all schools in the district will be closed on Good Friday.
The Board of Education approved the change at a meeting Thursday night.
