Possible Make-up Days

With a possibility of our school needing to make up days due to the snow days this winter, I have looked at the calendar and determined that the following days would be scheduled to be used as make up days if needed.

March 31st
April 21st
April 28th
May 5th

These are for reference at this time only, we will only schedule make up days if we go over our limit. Right now we are sitting at one snow day left in the bank before we will have to make up days. If you have any questions, please let me know.
