LCHS chooses traditional snow days


For the first time, Limestone had to make the decision to take an learning day or a snow day due to frigid temperatures and icy conditions in January.  Limestone opted for traditional snow days which must be made up at the end of the school year as a way to ensure the best student learning by having students physically in the classrooms.

LCHS superintendent, Dr. Allan Gresham explained how this choice will impact Limestone.  “Each school year we build five emergency days into our school calendar in case we have a snow day.  if we didn’t have any snow days our last day of school would’ve been May 23rd, but because we have canceled school three times already for snow days and inclement weather our last day will now be May 28th.”

“Other schools like Washington had three snow days, and they used one e-learning and two snow days.  They don’t have to each be used in a row.  You can mix it up. Some schools have taken that approach too,” said Gresham.  It’s a school-by-school decision how they want to use or not use elearning.  Limestone bases its decision on how early the snow starts and if the plows can get out in time before the buses start their route. As a result, e-learning will not affect Limestone unless we use our five emergency days.
