For now, the last day for students at Trigg County Public Schools will continue to be Wednesday, June 4.

At a special-called meeting Monday night, board members had hoped to discuss calendar options. But state legislators hadn’t come to any kind of agreement about how to address the issue of school days missed because of snow and ice. So Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said there wasn’t anything to discuss on this issue.

“I put it on here in the hopes that the legislature today would make some decisions regarding the makeup days that would give us some direction, that we could go ahead and make people aware of,” Hamby said. “They’re going to try to appoint some more negotiators and send it back to negotiations.”

A draft proposal would reportedly have let school districts extend school days to a maximum of seven hours a day. However, Hamby said that during the meeting, he had received an e-mail that said that this compromise was dead.
