School District Five announces make-up day for Hurricane Dorian

September 24, 2019

Irmo, SC - Lexington-Richland School District Five has announced a make-up day lost due to Hurricane Dorian.

 

Students in School District Five will now have to attend school on Monday, Oct. 7, which was previously scheduled as a Teacher Work Day/Parent Conference Day. This will be an A Day for middle and high school students.

 

The decision to close schools on Sept. 5 was made out of an abundance of caution for the safety of students, parents and staff due to strong winds and other expected impacts of Hurricane Dorian.

 

By state law, all school days missed because of snow, extreme weather conditions, or other disruptions requiring schools to close must be made up. The law also requires school districts to designate annually at least three days within their school calendars to be used as make-up days. Those dates approved in the 2019-2020 calendar for School District Five are as follows: Oct. 7, Oct. 25, Oct. 28, Feb. 17, March 13, March 16 and April 10.

 

Another state law and School Policy IC allows school boards to waive up to three additional days by a majority vote after the district has made up three days or the appropriate number of missed hours.

 

In bringing a recommendation for Oct. 7 to the School Board, district leaders received input from parent leaders, principals, teacher leaders, and staff. The Board unanimously approved the Oct. 7 make-up day during its meeting on Sept. 23.
