Students will have to make up ice days

Lamar County schools did not plan to add any more days to its calendar to make up for the four days students missed during the recent snowstorm ‘“ but last week’s ice storm changed that. Schools were closed Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 12-14. These days will need to be made up, the board of education heard Feb. 11. ’Currently, we expect to do this in lieu of the professional days that were scheduled for March 14 and 17,’ said superintendent Dr. Bill Truby. ‘We will be in school March 14 and 17.’ As of Feb. 3 the school reached its maximum for emergency days for children. ’We’ll work hard to minimize the after-effects but we’re in an age of accountability from many perspectives,’ said Dr. Truby. ‘There’s the obvious concern about the education of our children.’ Lamar County schools are committed to taking advantage of every instructional opportunity between now and CRCT and EOCT time, he added. Training time would be added back at the end of the school year. ’All area districts are doing what we’re doing,’ he said. ‘We didn’t want anybody hurt. Gov. Nathan Deal’s executive order of a state of emergency may mean it will be forgiven. If not we’ll have some challenges for the adults. We’ll see how it all plays out.’
