Snow days may not be a day off in Timberlane School District in Plaistow
Superintendent Earl Metzler has asked administrators in each of the district’s schools to look at plans for applying for the state Blizzard Bags program.
If 80 percent of the students in the district complete the assignments handed out for the snow days, then it qualifies as a day of school and an additional day is not added to the end of the school year.
“First, we have to put together a plan and apply,” said Metzler. “We could apply and if it gets approved, and then choose not to execute it.”
“We are under the gun as far as time goes,” he said. “We will share it with you as soon as we think we have something that can be approved. Then we can decide if it is something we want to use.”firstname.lastname@example.org
