Norwalk City School District Makeup Day Announcement 02.01.19

Feb. 1, 2019:  This week students in grades PreK-8 exceeded our threshold for days missed due to weather related conditions.  In our 2018/19 school calendar we added two potential makeup days.  They are February 15 and April 22.  Beyond those two days, any additional makeup days will be added to the end of the school year.  

School will now be in session for students in grades Prek-8 on February 15.  

As of now students who attend Norwalk High School will not have school on February 15.  In the event of another school cancellation before February 15, NHS students will then be in session also. 

We are often asked “Why do we need to makeup calamity days when the state is now on hours?”  The best answer to this question is…. the state has set the minimum number of hours students must attend.  We strive to provide our Norwalk students more than a minimum education.  Thus, we allow for the traditional five days (30 to 39 instructional hours), but makeup the additional time lost.
