Snow Make-Up Days, Important Information

This just in: the remaining Early Release Days in Jessamine County (Jan 29, Feb 26, Apr 23) will be FULL INSTRUCTIONAL days. The last day of school is still currently Wednesday, June 4.
This is a proactive move, not a reactive one. While you may remember from the Snow Day Q&A that Kentucky mandates a minimum number of days for student instruction, in times of an inordinate amount of snow days, the state begins to look not at the number of days, but at the amount of instructional time our students received. By extending these three days, we gain nine hours of instructional time. If the weathermen are correct, and this is only the beginning of what's to come, adding these nine hours puts in a place where forgiveness of days from the governor is a POSSIBILITY.
Clearly, we are several steps away from how this all will end, but we felt this was the best plan for our students.

No School Wednesday

Due to slick roads and cold temperatures, Jessamine County Schools will be closed Wednesday, January 22.
