Halifax County spring break survives winter cancellations

SoVaNow.com / March 11, 2014
There was good news for students and parents alike as Halifax County Superintendent of Schools Merle Herndon advised trustees on Monday evening that spring vacation days are protected.

"We have enough time banked (with the addition of using March 17 as an instructional day rather than a teacher workday) to cover 12 days lost to inclement weather," she said.

According to a letter from the state Board of Education, the first five days lost have to be made up on a one-to-one basis whereas days lost after that are made up on a 2 to 1 (make-up) schedule. With that rule in mind, Halifax County still has two banked days remaining should they be needed, she said.
