Do schools have to make up the days if it is declared a state of emergency?
Michelle Wolfson October 28, 2012 at 07:13 PM
Yes all BHPRSD and GT Public schools closed Monday and Tuesday....so far.
Michelle Wolfson October 28, 2012 at 07:17 PM
And I would imagine they will have to make them up. I think they have an allotted amount of days- usually reserved for snow- so maybe they can use those. But assuming we'll have some snow days this year, ultimately they will have to make them up.
