Glen Rock Students in School for MLK Day

Students will attend a one-session day on Jan. 21 to make up one of the days lost to Sandy.

In an effort to make up three required instructional days lost to Sandy, students will be braving the cold on Jan. 21., better known as Martin Luther King Day.

At its Dec. 10 meeting, Interim Superintendent Ray Albano suggested the school board agree to a one-session day on Jan. 21 while also making up the final two lost days during the April break, Thursday, April 11, and Friday, April 12.

Martin Luther King Day was previously designated as a day off in the calendar approved by the board in January.

According to district spokeswoman Andrea Tahinos, the state requires at least four hours of instructional time to constitute a full day.

"Observances of the holiday for students will be planned throughout the district during the morning hours; staff development activities will be planned for the afternoon," the district said in a statement.

Sounds like a good use for that day.
