Q: After a missed day due to inclement weather, what happens to the even/odd schedule?

A: Students always return to school on the type of day (even or odd) opposite the last attended day. Then, the calendar resumes as posted.
For example, if an even day were missed due to snow, the next day students return to school would become an even day despite its prior designation. After that day, the calendar is followed as posted. Depending on the number of days missed, the resulting situation may present two odd or two even days in succession. Note that if two days are missed, the schedule corrects itself normally. There may be exceptions to this practice for instructional purposes in which case students will be notified.
