Due to snow and icy conditions, Lincoln County Schools was closed January 9th and 10th for students. February 24th, April 14th and/or Saturdays in the month of January, February, and March were designated as potential make-up days on the 2016-2017 school calendar.
Please note the plan regarding student make-up day(s):
January 9th will NOT be made up based on banked instructional time.
January 10th was designated as an optional teacher workday and will take the place of the February 24th optional workday.
February 24th will become a regular school day for students and staff.
Why are we making up January 10th?
- The 2016-2017 school year has 178 days, thus resulting in two less instructional days than in previous school calendars.
- As a result of the two less instructional days, there are fewer banked instructional hours beyond the required 1,025.
- Unfortunately, we cannot predict the weather during the winter season, and we are trying to preserve our banked time balance in order to maintain options in the upcoming months.
