School District 833 eyes April 18 as make-up day
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

School District 833 families may want to rethink any Easter weekend travel plans they’ve made.

South Washington County Schools is tentatively planning to use Friday, April 18, as a make-up day after having to cancel classes last week. April 18 is Good Friday and had been designated as a spring holiday.

Schools were closed Friday, Feb. 21, due to a winter storm. It was the sixth weather-related closure this school year.

Administrators will ask the School Board on March 6 to approve scheduling classes on April 18. The board previously indicated that likely would be the make-up day for a sixth cancellation.
