on Wednesday, 17 January 2018. Posted in Education

DARLINGTON--The Darlington County School District has released the revised 2017-2018 school district calendar to incorporate the recent inclement weather days. Students lost three instructional days due to inclement weather this year, one for the hurricane in September and two as a result of the recent snow.

The school district will utilize all three designated inclement weather make-up days built in to the calendar: February 16, March 30 and April 27. These days will now become normal school days and attendance will be taken as usual.

• Feb. 16 is now a regular school day to make up for September 11 (hurricane)*
• March 30 is now a regular school day to make up for January 4 (snow)
• April 27 is now a regular school day to make up for January 5 (snow)

Parent-Teacher conferences will take place from 4-7 p.m. on February 15. Additional parent-teacher conferences will be available for the week of February 19 as determined and communicated by individual schools.

The two missed days will also impact the end of the quarter, teacher workdays and report cards. The quarters will now end on January 22 and March 27. Further, January 23 and March 27 will be early dismissal days for students so teachers may work on grades and report cards.
