Sulphur Springs ISD will have to make up one of the days missed last month due to the ice and snow which made travel dangerous Feb. 18-26, school administrators announced in a notice sent out via Blackboard.
Students missed five regular class days due to the recent snow storm and its effects. SSISD Board of Trustees Monday night approved submission of an application to Texas Education Agency asking for a waiver, excusing the district for five school days missed, Thursday, Feb. 18, and Tuesday-Friday, Feb. 23-26.
After filing a waiver, SSISD received notification by lunch time Wednesday, that the district will only be required to make up one of the five missed class days. That day will be made up on Monday, April 12, a day originally intended to be a staff preparation day and student holiday. Now, however, April 12 will be a traditional day of school for all – with all students and staff required to attend that day.
