PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Pender County Board of Education approved a make-up schedule for snow days during its regular meeting last night, including a Saturday.
According to a release, all schools will be in session for a full day on Saturday, Jan. 20.
Traditional calendar schools and Penderlea School will be in session for students on Monday, Jan. 22, which is currently on the calendar as a Mandatory Workday. Pender Early College will be in session for students on Tuesday, Jan. 16, which is also currently on the calendar as a Mandatory Workday.
Pender County Schools says it had some time built into the calendar in case of inclement weather. After exhausting this time, the district says it must make up instructional time lost in order to meet state-mandated requirements for instruction.
A school spokeswoman said all decisions about school cancellations, delays and early releases are made with student safety as the primary consideration.
