Last week the snow came, and Rapid City schools closed down for two days. Now another storm causes classes to be canceled.
Because of the closures, students will be let out for summer vacation Friday May 24th instead of the 21st. However, Seniors will not be affected.
Rapid City Area Schools superintendent, Dr. Tim Mitchell, says making the decision to close school is one the toughest parts of his job.
"It's what we don't sleep about at night. We understand the consequences both ways. Yesterday people were calling the office and saying we should have released early because they felt it was bad out. And many people today under the same conditions were mad because we didn't have school," said Mitchell.
On Thursday night the school board will officially amend the calendar, making students' last day of class May 24th.
