Yukon not making up snow day
YUKON, Okla.—A few students were able to enjoy an extra day off last month when class was cancelled for bad weather. Now the Yukon Public School District says that day does not need to be made up.
Yukon Public School Superintendent Bill Denton announced that there would be no need to make up the snow day that was used on Feb. 21.
Officials say the district calculates the school year in minutes rather than days, which allows the schools to not have to make up snow days if they stay on track.
Authorities say the district just needs to be on track to have 1,080 hours for the school year.
As long as the district continues this way, the last day of school for students will be May 23.
