Arlington Public Schools announces make-up plan due to snow

Arlington Public Schools has announced its make-up plan for days missed because of the snow.


Elementary Schools With Early Release

Elementary Schools With Early Release will have full instructional days on the following Wednesdays to make up instructional time lost.

  •     Wed, March 11
  •     Wed, April 15
  •     Wed, April 22
  •     Wed. April 29

According to a news release, if Arlington Public Schools is closed or has a late opening on March 5 and/or 6 due to inclement weather, Elementary Schools With Early Release will not have to made up these days because they were designated as Parent-Teacher Conference Days, not regular student attendance days.

Elementary Schools With Limited Early Release, Barcroft, Stratford, Middle Schools and High Schools

Because of additional instructional hours that are built into the 2014-15 calendar for these schools beyond the 990 minimum equivalent hours required by the State, the instructional days lost and time missed for closings and late openings do not have to be made up.

Please note the following:

If Elementary Schools With Limited Early Release are closed or have late openings on March 5 and/or 6 due to inclement weather, these days will not have to be made up because they are designated as Parent-Teacher Conference Days, not student attendance days, so there is no need to make up these days.

If Middle Schools are closed or have late openings on March 5 and/or 6 due to inclement weather, these days will not have to be made up because March 6 is designated as a Parent/Teacher Conference Day, not a student attendance day, and there is enough instructional time built into the calendar to cover March 5.

If Barcroft, Stratford and all APS High Schools are closed or have late openings on March 5 and/or 6 due to inclement weather, these days will not have to be made up because there is enough instructional time built into the calendar to cover these days.
