Inclement Weather Make-Up Update

At the Board of Education work session held Tuesday morning, the Board approved two inclement weather make-up days that will take place Friday, March 15, 2019 and Friday, April 19, 2019.  Both of these days will be two-hour early release days.  The Friday, March 15 date was originally a "no school day" due to parent-teacher conferences.  Please note that both Thursday, March 14, and Friday, March 15 will be two-hour early release days.  The EPiC Academic Calendar will also add March 15 and April 19 as inclement weather make-up days.

The decision to make these days up was made in an effort to not push the school year into June, thus interfering with the summer school schedule.  As it currently stands, the last day of school in LPS will be Friday, May 31, 2019.  A complete summary of inclement weather days can be found below.

***************
Liberty Public Schools has missed nine days of school due to inclement weather this school year.  In an effort to not push the school year into the month of June, and to not interfere with the summer school attendance calendar, both Friday, March 15, 2019, and Friday, April 19, 2019, have been identified as make-up days. Both of these days would be 2-hour early release days.

Should additional days be missed due to inclement weather, the rules under Missouri State Statute *RSMo 171.033.4 will be applied.  Should districts miss seven or more days, the statute allows for the next inclement weather day to be forgiven and not made up. Should a district miss a total of 14 days, this statute caps the make-up days at 10.

For Liberty Public Schools, the inclement weather make-up days would look like this:
