The first blanket of snow fell on Westport this week, and although it’s only one day off for local schools, a plan is in place should snow days begin to pile up deeper into winter.
We’ve made it to mid-December with just one closing, but snow days are inevitable, and when they come they will take days built into the end of the year. If snow days really start to accumulate, days will be taken away from students’ April vacations.
The last day for students and teachers in Westport is currently scheduled for June 20, according to Westport Public Schools.
The first five snow days are built into the end of the year. Any additional snow days will reduce the April vacation, beginning with Monday, April 14.
