April 18 added as school day in District 833
The South Washington County School Board approved adding April 18 as a makeup day after the district had to cancel a sixth school day due to weather.
Board members approved the extra day at their March 6 meeting.
April 18 is Good Friday. Administrators and School Board members had considered three possible days to add classes.
Adding the day will cost the district roughly $30,000, District 833 Finance Director Aaron Bushberger said. That figure takes into account the savings from not holding school on the six weather-related closures.
