MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Back-to-back snowstorms have given Mid-South students a long weekend of fun.
Unfortunately, nothing in this world is free. The students will have to make up those missed days somehow. How the days are made up depends on the school district.
Shelby County Schools said it has 13 makeup days built into the schedule.
Collierville has a very similar policy. Collierville Schools Superintendent John Aitken said his district also has 13 days stockpiled to help avoid having to schedule makeup days. The district stockpiled 13 days by making each instructional day 30 minutes longer than required.
Likewise, Tipton County has days stockpiled in the calendar. Tipton County Schools Superintendent Dr. Buddy Bibb said his school district is not in danger of having to schedule makeup days yet.
Germantown Municipal School District released the following statement about makeup days:
However, DeSoto County Schools have already scheduled its makeup days.
As we watch and wait for more possible closures this week, the common deciding factor for most school systems will be the roads.
"I think it's better to be safe than sorry," said parent Melissa Himelwright. "I drove a little bit and the roads aren't great."
