Cherokee County students to make up lost days in February

Cherokee County schools will shorten the system’s week-long break in February to make up for days lost to snow.

Schools were scheduled to be closed from Monday, Feb. 19, to Friday, Feb. 23.

The system will remain closed Feb. 19-20, but the makeup schedule will send students back to school on Weds., Feb 21 to Friday, Feb. 23.

Supt. Brian Hightower said in a letter he realizes that some may have made travel plans that cannot be changed, and asked those parents to communicate with teachers about makeup work.

He also noted that Cherokee County is planning to go to an online learning model for snow days, as some districts in metro Atlanta have, to keep from missing school for bad weather.
