Lee County Schools Announces Make Up Plan
Lee County Schools will make up instructional time missed because of the recent winter storms by adding 15 minutes to the elementary and middle school schedules and 16 minutes to the high school schedules. This change to the school day begins on Tuesday, March 10 and will be in effect through the end of the school year.
In addition, two scheduled half days – March 25 and April 29 – for traditional calendar schools are now full student days. The last day of school for students on the traditional and year-round calendars remains a half day.
By approving this plan at their meeting on March 4, the Lee County Board of Education achieved the district’s objective of preserving spring break and the Memorial Day holiday.
