Schools Scrambling To Make Up Snow Days


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Snow days have continued to pile up in March and school districts are scrambling to make up days. Sleet and snow kept the Warren County School System out an entire week. The system has now missed 13 days in 2014, which is almost eight more than their average over the last 10 years. As of now, those days have to be made up somehow.

"It's always an option to go to school on Saturdays. As far as spring break, we're three weeks out. We know a lot of parents have already made plans for vacations and stuff. That's highly unlikely, unless we have some kind of major disaster, that we would take any days from spring break at this point," said Warren County Schools Director of Student Services, Pat Stewart.

The last day of school for Warren County is currently set for June 4.

A bill is currently awaiting a vote in the Kentucky House of Representatives that would allow school systems in the commonwealth to miss up ten days without making them up.
