Unless the State of New York provides neccessary relief, Hampton Bays Schools will hold classes on two days previously set aside for spring break to make up for at least 2 of the 5 days it lost during Hurricane Sandy, according to Superintendent of Schools Lars Clemensen.
In a letter sent home to students, Clemsensen said the district's Board of Education has decided that school will be in session the first two days of spring break, March 25 and March 26.
To make up the remaining 3 days, 2 emergency snow days will be used, as well as a staff conference day that was scheduled for April 1.
"My holiday wish is for a mild winter with no more needed closings," stated Clemensen, adding that if snow days are required school the remaining spring break days will be used.
According to Clemensen, the state is not expected to provide an answer as to relief until early 2013 and precautions had to be taken by the district to ensure that if the state denies relief, the district still meets the state's 180-school day requirement to obtain state funding.
