Due to the dangerous cold and wind chill, January 29th will be our 6th calamity day for the 2013-2014 school year. School districts in Ohio are allotted 5 calamity or snow days a year.
Gov. John Kasich urged the Ohio General Assembly and Ohio Department of Education to work together on legislation that would provide a one-time increase in the number of days that schools can take off because of snow or bad weather.
While we wait for a decision on whether or not the increase in calamity days will be passed, we have scheduled a make up day for February 28, 2014. February 28, 2014 was previously a NON-INSTRUCTIONAL DAY – NO STUDENTS day. Please plan on students attending school on February 28, 2014.
We will keep the FLSD and our community up-to-date as the situation changes.
