(Jan. 12, 2018) Worcester County public school students missed four days of school because of last week’s winter storm, while only three inclement weather days are built into the school calendar.

Worcester County Public Schools were closed for students on Jan. 4, 5, 8 and 9. On Jan. 10, students returned to school following a two-hour delay.

“At this point, how to address the additional day has not yet been discussed,” Carrie Sterrs, coordinator of public relations and special programs, said. “School system leadership and the board of education will discuss any needed modifications to the school calendar or waiver applications once we have emerged from the time period in which any further weather closures could occur.

In past years, when modifications were made or waivers were requested, they were done so at the March board of education meeting.”
