Anchor Bay Has Not Exceeded Snow Days Yet This School Year

The four snow days used this school year won't mean make up days.

With four snow days under its winter belt, Anchor Bay Schools says it won't need make-up days just yet.

"We have not reached the number of days for any make up days and it’s hard to answer how many days we can miss because it’s done by contact hours, not by days," said Kathy Czarniawski, administrative assistant to Superintendent Leonard Woodside.

"But my rough guess would be five days but many circumstances come into play when you go over that," she said of how many days are allowed before make-ups are needed. "The state could also, depending on the situation, make adjustments to the number of days."

The district recently chose to shut doors one day last week due to concerns of icy roads. That was the fourth snow day of this school year and the precautions were taken, in large part, because of dangers on dirt roads in the rural end of the district.

Some parents on our Facebook page said the snow day was uncalled for while others praised the district for the safety measure.
