Last Friday found most Austin school children playing in a winter wonderland, enjoying a rare snow day. But now comes the payback: The Austin Independent School District has scheduled classes for Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, to make up for that lost curriculum day.
“Every single year, we build in bad weather days on the school calendars, so everybody knows what they are,” said Kathy Anthony, communication specialist at AISD. “But we don’t use them every year.”
The last time that AISD used bad weather make-up days was in January, 2007. AISD has closed schools for two days due to ice storm at that time.
