Chatfield discusses snow day makeup

With snowy Mondays all throughout the month of March, area schools have delayed and cancelled classes for the safety of their students. The story was the same for Chatfield School District. But how many snow days are too many is what school board members tried to determine at the March meeting on March 25.

Within the district’s calendar for the rest of the 2012-2013 school, there were no more available days to schedule a make-up day. This means that if a make-up day were scheduled, it would have to be tagged to the end of the academic year in June. However, school board members thought that students would not be as productive and would already be checked out for the year when June arrives.

The idea of having a staff development day was also suggested, but there would be stipulations that would need to be investigated for contract reasons. Board member Kathy Schellhammer recommended forgiving the day without making it up because occurrences like this are rarely encountered. The board unanimously voted to forgive the make-up day. Next year the district will be more prepared for excessive snow days with possible make-up days embedded into future school calendars.

Administrators and board members talked about a new school activities board committee which would relate in direct communications to all of the district’s extra activities. The committee was created with Greg LaPlante, Jerry Chase, and Mike Tuohy as acting members. The board hired Craig Ihrke as JV baseball coach and Deb Hare as an elementary paraprofessional.

The next board meeting will be April 15 and the early dismissal scheduled for April 19 has been cancelled.
