Snow Make-Up Days Set; Spring Break Saved (so far)
Durham schools have missed five days due to snow this winter. One day has been already made up for; a second make-up day will be held March 28.
The DPS School Board announced March 4 that the remaining three days would be waived. This is allowed under state law because Durham students will have been in school for more than the required minimum number of hours.
This means that spring break remains intact (unless more days are missed).
