Rapid City school students probably won't have to make-up last snow day


Students who attend school in the Rapid City School District probably won't have to make-up the last snow day.
The Rapid City School Board still has to approve the recommendation from the school's calendar committee.  Superintendent Dr. Tim Mitchell says it's likely they will.

School was set to end Tuesday, May 21, but due to the five snow days this year, it will end with an early release on Friday the 24th.
Mitchell says under South Dakota law, students K-3 must have 875 hours of instruction.  Students 4 - 12 must have 962.5 hours of school. He says even if they don't make-up the last snow day, students will exceed that expectation.  "We really don't want to go and have them come back after Memorial Day," Dr. Mitchell said.

The school board will make the final decision at their meeting next week.
