Snow Day's Affects on Massabesic

Written by: Luke Cloutier

Many students consider snow days to be a mini holiday where they sleep in and forget about all of their responsibilities, whereas, for school administration and staff, snow days are a problem with all the additional work. As early November, in the span of just two weeks, Massabesic has already experienced three snow days with many more expected to come.

In past years, snow days have caused loads of problems with the rescheduling of daily class plans, rescheduling of after-school activities, and an extended school that leads to a late start to summer. All of these problems bring stress to the school board and require them to make decisions and compromises to make up for all of the lost school days.

A student school board representative states, ”The school board is currently discussing many possible solutions and are deciding which are the most ideal ways to make up the lost school days.”  Some of these potential solutions could consist of, extending all half days to full days, taking away April vacation, or even adding an hour to the end of the school day for a certain period of time.
