The Washington Township School district will have class in session on three days originally scheduled to recognize national holidays in order to fight its way back from the closures brought about from Superstorm Sandy.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day and two days scheduled to observe Presidents Day in February will now be regular school days, Superintendent Jeff Mohre said.
Those calendar days are Jan. 21, 2013, and Feb. 18 and 19, 2013.
The district used eight inclement weather days due to power outages and impassable roads over the course of two weeks created by Hurricane Sandy. The school calendar allotted for four inclement weather days at the start of the year.
Holding class on those three previously scheduled holidays will leave the district to only make up one more inclement weather day, barring any further weather-related closures.
The board plans to make a revision to the calendar after the Thanksgiving holiday, Mohre said.
