Inclement Weather/Make-up Plan for Culpeper County Public Schools
© Culpeper TimesAs of today, March 6, 2014, Culpeper County Public Schools have been closed for 14 days due to inclement weather.
Because of the number of school days missed it has become necessary to lengthen the school day at the elementary level in order to meet the state law requirement of 180 student days or 990 hours of instruction. In all likelihood, families will not even notice the change because the adjustment is being made internally i.e., modifying recess or lunch shifts. The secondary schools will not be impacted because their instructional time exceeds the minimum required.
As additional school days are likely to be missed due to inclement weather and unsafe road conditions, the Superintendent wants to assure families that Spring Break (April 14-18, 2014) will not be impacted.
The 2013/2014 school calendar reflected five make-up days – June 6, 9, 10, 11, and 12. The guaranteed last day of school will be June 12 with the last three days being early dismissal days.
The high school graduation ceremonies will take place on the evening of Friday, June 6 (Eastern View High School) and the morning of Saturday, June 7 (Culpeper County High School).
