Inclement Weather Make-Up Schedule

Catoosa County Public Schools will add 20 minutes to the school day to make-up for inclement weather days. Superintendent Reese said, “We have considered several options, and we believe adding instructional minutes each day will allow us to maximize instruction and recover time lost to inclement weather.”

She added, “I know families have vacations planned for spring break and Memorial Day. I believe adding 20 minutes each day is better for families, and for student achievement, than using spring break or adding days at the end of the year.”

The change will begin on Monday, February 24, 2014, and continue until the end of the year. Superintendent Reese said, “We will begin school five minutes earlier, and dismiss fifteen minutes later. School dismissal times will vary, so parents should check the website of their child’s school to find out the new dismissal schedule.”
