Fellow parents, join me in celebrating a full week of school. No holidays. No professional development days. And best of all, no snow days. It’s the first uninterrupted week of school in five weeks.
Most Southborough students have had four snow days this year. Trottier students have had five thanks to last week’s roof issues.
Superintendent Charles Gobron said at the K-8 School Committee meeting earlier this week that the school calendar builds in five snow days each year. Any days beyond that would be added on to the end of the school year.
You’ve probably heard on the news that other districts are considering taking away vacation time to make up for lost school days, but Gobron said that is unlikely to happen here because there’s still time to fit in the days at the end of the year.
“Unless we have some huge emergency like the Blizzard of ’78, we don’t plan on taking vacation time,” Gobron said.
School is currently scheduled to end on June 23.
