Chapel Hill-Carrboro, Orange and Chatham school systems to make up lost days in April and May

— With the snow shutting down schools across the Triangle on Thursday and Friday, the make-up days for Chapel-Hill Carborro City Schools are set to take place once in April and once in May.

For Thursday’s snow day, students will have to make up school April 18. For Friday’s snow day, school officials say students will make up school May 26. The school board approved the calendar set by the district for make-up days at a Nov. 1 meeting.

Monday was already scheduled to be a make-up day because of canceled school Jan. 29. The make-up day for schools closing on Jan. 30 will be March 28.

After that, there are no more make-up days on the calendar. School board chairwoman Jamezetta Bedford said the district would consider taking a day off of spring break or having school on a Saturday, but no decision has been made.

“That is a conversation we will need to have,” said Jeff Nash, school system spokesman.

Chatham County Schools

Chatham County Schools are also closed Thursday and Friday. The make-up for those days have not been decided.

Friday will be the fifth snow day for Chatham County Schools. Schools were shut down Jan. 29-31. Friday was intended to be a make-up day for the Jan. 29 snow day. The other two make-up days will be on March 7, and April 11.

The district is asking parents to fill out a survey for suggestions of when students should make-up school.

“Saturday, Feb. 15 will not be an option for make-up due to the uncertainty regarding icy conditions overnight,” the website states. “We will provide make-up time plans as soon as that information has been determined.”

Orange County Schools

Orange County Schools have also announced they will be closed on Friday. Schools were also canceled on Jan. 29 and Jan. 30 because of snow. Make-up days will be on Feb. 28, April 21, June 13 and Saturdays, the website says.

June 13 is one day after the last scheduled day of school.
