Winter weather means local school districts may have to adjust calendars again

CRAVEN COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Many school systems across the east were recently tasked with adjusting their calendars after a wintry mix of snow and ice.

With snow in the forecast again this week, more calendar adjustments may be in store.

Class was dismissed early for all Craven County Public Schools Wednesday and the district announced that schools will be operating on a two-hour delay for Thursday.

It was just two weeks ago that Craven County students missed a full five days due to snowfall, but some kids we caught up with say things have still gone pretty well after lesson plan adjustments.

"When we go to take exams, we'll be good, especially first period, my teacher, he did a whole bunch of review and gave us review papers and stuff," says Khyree Roberts, a high school junior.

The Craven County School Board says the five missed days have since been rescheduled to meet the required 185 days or 1,025 hours of instruction in a year.

The first makeup day is Monday, January 22nd, which was supposed to only be a workday for staff.

The next makeup day is February 19.

Then, April 27th, which was originally an early release day for students.

Students will also have to come in on June 7 and 8, which, as of now, will be the new last day of school.
