Sandy Days Tacked on to End of BHPRSD Calendar

Attention, BHPRSD seniors: You will be graduating (at least) two days later than you thought.

The Black Horse Pike Regional School District Board of Education voted Thursday night to add two days to the end of the 2012-13 school calendar to make up for days lost to Superstorm Sandy last month.

The two school days canceled due to Sandy on Oct. 29 and 30 will be made up on Thursday, June 20, and Friday, June 21, which is now slated as Graduation Day for seniors at Black Horse Pike Regional School District's three high schools—Highland, Timber Creek and Triton.

This schedule is, of course, tentative and could again change depending on how many, if any, snow days the district uses this coming winter.

Superintendent John Golden noted the next three unplanned school closings would be tacked onto the end of the school calendar. So, in the event there are three snow days this winter (or other unplanned school closings), Graduation Day would be Wednesday, June 26.

It appears June 26 would be the absolute latest for BHPRSD's last day of school.

After a total of five canceled school days are tacked on to the end of the 2012-13 school calendar—so, the two from Sandy and up to three for snow days—the plan would be to take days away from the district's planned Spring Break, Golden said. For a sixth canceled day, Friday, April 5, would become a school day, for a seventh canceled day, Thursday, April 4, would become a school day, and so on.

So maybe they should have had school for 2 days when the convention was cancelled.
