The Duneland School
Corporation will make up the March 12 snow day on Saturday, April 5, 2014.
The objective is to
make up lost instructional time for students as soon as possible, satisfy
state requirements for instructional time and, avoid any change to the high
school’s graduation ceremony.
David Pruis stated that issues/conflicts do arise any time the school
calendar is altered. Given the number of school delays and cancellations
experienced throughout the state this year, Duneland students, parents,
teachers and staff members have remained flexible and steadfast in their
efforts to continue the education process. The understanding and cooperation
of all those involved in making up instructional time is greatly
Some may recall the
Corporation also used a Saturday to make up a snow day in April 2009.
Earlier both Union Township School Corporation and Valparaiso Community
Schools announced that their schools will be open and classes will be in
session on April 5, 2014.
