Wednesday, June 4, is tentatively the last day for students at Trigg County Public Schools, as a result of the most days missed because of bad weather in five years.

That is what Trigg County Schools Assistant Superintendent of Personnel and Operations James Mangels said Monday afternoon. That date, he added, is dependent on bad weather not closing the school again this school year. The schools were closed all last week in another winter storm, bringing the total to 15 days missed this school year.

On Monday, students were sent home with survey letters asking parents and guardians if they wanted to use three days of the spring break as make-up days, Mangels said. A copy of the survey can also be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/make-up-days. Surveys should be returned by 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Kentucky House of Representatives is expected to bring House Bill 410 to a vote this week. The bill, if passed, would provide a waiver of as many as 10 instructional days for schools that have missed days this school year.

Should part of the spring break be used as make-up days?
