Schools Don’t Have To Make Up Snow Days

A school bus sits covered in snow during a snow day.

Indiana schools that canceled class Monday and Tuesday may not have to make up the days later this year.

Indiana Department of Education officials announced Monday that because the extreme cold is a safety issue, districts would be eligible for waivers to not make up the days.

The waivers are not automatic.

Schools will still need to apply to the state to approve the time off.

Monroe County Community Schools announced today it would seek a waiver for Monday and Tuesday.

An MCCSC spokesperson said the district is hopeful the request will be granted.

The school district had one other snow day this year on Dec. 6. It will make up that day on May 23.
