Many students have enjoyed multiple snow days already this year, which has some parents asking how missed days will impact the school calendar.
Here’s what some of the biggest districts have prepared for school make-up days. Washington state law says every child must be able to go to school 180 days out of the year.
If you don’t see your school district listed here, check their individual website and look for the academic calendar for the school year.
King County schools
Seattle School District:
The Seattle School District has three days designated as snow days during the 2018-19 school year. They are January 30, June 21 and June 24. If more snow days are called, the school district will have to negotiate with their labor partner, Seattle Education Association, to make up the lost days.
Lake Washington School District
The Lake Washington School District only has one make-up day built in to its calendar. The make-up day would be on May 28 this year. If more make-up days were needed, officials said more days could be added to the end of the school year, or teacher in-service days could be used.
