As of now, EPISD is making up the first day missed of school (Wednesday) which will be made up Memorial Day, which was a holiday. The other two days I am not sure on. I've heard because of "emergency" situations that they may not be made up, but that is just based off of rumors and innuendo.

The only way to get a waiver to lower the number of days to the school year is for the state legislature to make it law. They will have to make up all the days otherwise.

I know this because when LBJ died, the state legislature went into special session to close schools and state offices the day of the funeral. I was in 8th grade and helped to change all the attendance cards that year from 180 to 179 at Terrace Hills.

I heard a rumor that they are going to cancel some/all of Spring Break. For UTEP, at least. I hope that's not what happens!

UTEP will probably cut spring break by 3 days, giving students only Thurs and Fri off.. at least they'll still have a 4 day weekend to go to ruidoso or somewhere close by.

Spring Break? What's that? I never had "Spring Break" when I was in school. Makes sense for all ISDs, UTEP, EPCC, NMSU and DACC to make up these "snow" days during Spring Break. That way it's done and over with and they don't have to extend the school year at the end of May. Makes too much sense, so it probably will not happen.

Your school has to make up all snow or weather related days off at the end of the year. so if you have made plans to leave the last day of school this year you are going to have to reset by at least three days. More if there are nay more bad weather days ahead.

There are NO Spring Breaks in the real working world, so these college (and high school) kids need to get used to it. Four days off are more than enough time to relax. Bunch of crybabies.
