“Yesterday (Wednesday) was a tough day. Winds blowing, we dismissed prior to that, we had 14 roads that were noted as being closed, and that’s kind of haunting,” McGinnis said. However, the superintendent added, maintenance workers cleared the roads and the students were taken home mostly on time.
McGinnis again noted that Monday, Feb. 16, which is Presidents Day, and Friday, March 13, which was a mini-break, would be used as make-up days, as the school system missed seven days of school due to the ice storm.
And although no action was taken, the superintendent brought up the idea that Tuesday, May 19, which is a designated primary election day, might also be used as a make-up day, as he said there aren’t any elections this year. It was brought up, however, that there is the possibility of special elections.
“As far as the work of the General Assembly, there’s a couple of bills that have been presented, and as far as possible relief days for the ice storm, we’ll see where that goes,” McGinnis said. “We may miss more because of snow, who knows?”
Additionally, Trigg County High School Principal Neal Cummins, Trigg County Middle School Principal James Mangels, Trigg County Intermediate School Brian Futrell and Trigg County Primary School Ann Taylor gave individual school improvement plan reports.
