The West Valley school board agreed Wednesday to have students make up two snow days by attending school on Feb. 13 and May 22.

The district will look at when and if to make up the remaining three snow days at a later date and may have to look to June to make them up, said Superintendent Polly Crowley. “We’ll start there,” she said. “My belief is we should make up as much as we possibly can.”

The state requires students to receive 1,000 hours of instruction and the district will meet those requirements, said Assistant Superintendent Gene Sementi. Under those requirements the district would not have to make the days up even if a waiver is not granted by the state. “I’d rather see us in school,” he said.

West Valley High School did examine whether they should adjust the semester ending date but decided to leave the calendar alone, he said. “They’re sticking with the dates they have.”
