Most local school districts are already out of snow days and are hoping to squeak by without having to use any more for fear of having to open during break.
Three snow days have already been used so far: Feb. 9, Feb. 10 and today, March 14.
Riverhead school district superintendent Nancy Carney said three snow days were included in the 2016-17 year.
If the district is forced to close any additional days, then it will need to be open on spring break, starting on April 10, she said.
Raymond Ankrum, the Riverhead Charter School’s principal and executive director, also said three snow days were included in this year’s calendar.
However, the charter school plans to add additional school days to the end of the year if it needs to use any more snow days as opposed to shortening spring break.
One snow day was included in the Shoreham-Wading River school district’s calendar. School will be opened May 26 and May 30.
Editor’s note: The story has been updated to reflect school will be in session May 26 and May 30 for the Shoreham-Wading River school district.
