Back To The Classroom For Schools Across The East

It's back to the classroom for schools across the east, including John cotton Taylor Elementary School in Washington.

Teachers in Beaufort County tell WITN that they used their snow vacation to re-work their lesson plans.

The recent snow storm closed schools in Beaufort County for four days.

East Carolina University is also back to school, after missing three and a half days due to the snow.

The question of when to make up all those snow days is now on the table.

According to a 2012 Faculty Senate Resolution at ECU, end-of-semester reading days and Good Friday are listed as designated make up days.

The Faculty Senate will meet this week to determine exactly when the snow days will be made up.

For Beaufort County schools, officials say they can tack them on the end of the school year or take away from Spring Break or Easter Break. Saturday School is even a make up option.

As for the students, some say they're prepping for a heavy workload.

ECU Student Andrew Bawben says, "It's definitely a lot of work that's been piled up since we had a week off. It gave you an opportunity to catch up on the work but a lot of students like myself didn't take that opportunity serious and I just kind of relaxed the whole week and went sledding. So coming back to school, I have a lot of work that I have to catch up with and a lot of tests I have to prepare for."
