ELKHART COUNTY – The Concord Community Schools district will be conducting a phone survey this week of parents and staff members to get feedback on options for making up snow days, Superintendent Wayne Stubbs said in an email Tuesday, Feb. 25.

One option includes tacking extra time onto school days starting after spring break, but Stubbs also said the school might add the eight required make-up days to the end of the school year.

If the school day is lengthened after spring break, only three days would be tacked on in June. If hours aren't extended, eight days will be added instead.

Originally, the district's stop date for summer break was May 29. If the days are made up at the end of the school year, the semester will end June 10; if the district decides to lengthen school days, it will end on June 3.

The district plans to announce its decision during the week of March 3.

For more information on the district's options for making up days, check out the FAQ it put together for teachers, parents and students.
