SnowLeavesVerona’s public schools are out of snow days. So with snow and ice predicted for tonight and a massive snow storm on the way for Sunday, they have taken back vacation days from the February break and turned them into half days. This will give us two more snow days.

Here’s what’s happening according to the email just sent out by the schools:

In light of the string of emergency closing days and the threat of more to come we have decided to modify the 2013-14 school calendar.
The current calendar calls for February 14 and 17 to be vacation days for students and staff and February 18 to be a staff development day. The changes will be:

  • Friday February 14, 2014 will now be a 4 hour session for students and professional development in the afternoon for staff. Students will follow the regular four hour session schedule.
  • Monday February 17, 2014 will remain a vacation day for students and staff.
  • Tuesday February 18, 2014 will now be a 4 hour session for students and professional development in the afternoon for staff. Students will follow the regular four hour session schedule.

If we blow through six snow days, the school district will start dipping into Spring break.
