School Corporations in the Tri-State Announce Make-Up Days From Early December Snow Storm

Hey kids! Remember how excited you were when you woke up on December 6th, 9th, and 10th and found out you didn’t have to go to school because of the snow? Funny story, now you have to go on days you weren’t originally scheduled to because of it. Hilarious, right? Why are you crying?

Here’s the deal. By law, students are required to attend 180 days of classes. Since there are more than 180 weekdays between early August and late May (excluding holidays), corporations sprinkle in “off-days” throughout their calendars for situations such as this. If we don’t get any significant weather that causes an unplanned day off, days like Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, and the like remain days off, leaving students at home to do important stuff like play video games and watch Netflix.

However, if we do get a significant weather event, like we did with the winter storm in early December, then you do go to school on those days. Think of it like a payday advance. Someone loans you money you need before payday, but you have to pay it back once you do get paid again.

Here’s the breakdown of the school corporations that have announced their make-up days:

  • Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation - February 17th, April 18th and April 21st
  • Warrick County School Corporation - January 20th, February 17th and April 4th
  • Henderson County School Corporation - February 17th and April 3rd and 4th
  • Daviess County Public Schools (Owensboro, KY) - school year extended to May 16th to make up one snow day.
