Snow Days - Revised Schedule
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Due to the extreme winter, Van Buren Public Schools has had to close school eleven (11) days so far this year. Under current state law, only six (6) days may be "forgiven". Therefore, we need to make up five (5) additional days of school.
Unfortunately, being so late in the school year, no option chosen to address the addition of those school days will appease all families. Many families have made plans for Spring Break, that at this late date cannot be changed, and there are no other full days available in the current calendar. Therefore, we will need to eliminate as many of the remaining half days as possible and then add the rest of the days to the end of the school year.
Here are the changes that you need to be made aware of:
While there is no doubt the extension of the calendar another week in June will be a hardship for some families, the additional days are critical for the continued educational growth of all the students in the Van Buren Public School District. Since attendance within each school must be above 75% or the day does not "count", I am respectfully requesting that, if at all possible, families adjust their schedules so that students are in school on all remaining days.
Should the need to cancel school arise again, the year will continue to be extended as explained above.
Thank you so much for your continued support and understanding during this most difficult winter season.
Michael L. Van Tassel
