                                                            2018-19 Make Up Days Options

 

As of today March 1, 2019, this is the current calendar situation for Howard-Winneshiek Community Schools due to weather and/or temperature related cancellations, delays or early dismissals.

 

We have missed a total of 87.5 hours of instructional time. To get to the state minimum of 1080 hours we are required to make-up 8.4 hours of student instructional time as of March 1st. We will start making up these lost instructional hours during the already scheduled teacher in-service and vacation days of April (see those dates below). This would give us an additional 11.7 hours should we need to miss anymore time for any reason and allow the end of the school year to be on the originally scheduled date of May 22nd. If for any reason we would go beyond those 11.7 hours we would need to add instructional hours starting on May 23rd
