Vacations for the 2012-13 school year will remain intact despite five days lost to Superstorm Sandy, the Montauk School Board announced this week. The board changed this year’s original 184-day schedule to reflect the state’s 180-day requirement, according to a statement.
School will be in session in Montauk on Monday, April 1, and Monday, April 29, which had been penciled in as a superintendent’s conference day. If more days are needed due to snow cancellations, they will be added on June 21 for students and on June 24 for faculty and staff.
Following the East Hampton School District’s revised school calendar, the Springs School will be open Tuesday, March 26, Wednesday, March 27, and Thursday, March 28, which were originally part of spring break. If a snow day is needed, April 1 will be an instructional day, and if a second one is required, there will be school on Monday, March 25, as well.
The Amagansett School will also be open March 26, March 27 and March 28. There will be school in Amagansett on March 25 if a snow day needs to be made up and on March 29 if the school has been closed for snow on two days.
The Wainscott School Board had not yet decided how it will make up lost days, District Clerk Mary McCaffrey said on Thursday. The board is scheduled to meet on Wednesday, December 19, when it is likely to decide on its strategy.
