The EVSC will again be using the flexibility the Indiana Department of Education has given schools to make up the most recent snow day taken on March 3.

To make up the day, the EVSC will once again extend the school day by one hour for six consecutive days, from March 31-April 7.

Principals agreed that this method of making up one day offers the best use of instructional time and educational benefit to students.

Adding an additional day after the school year is over, or on a Saturday was determined not to be of the best use educationally, would have substantial impact for the EVSC financially, and would be more disruptive to family plans.
