Coweta won't have to make up snow days

The Coweta County School System has determined that no additional school days will be required to make up for student instructional days missed due to inclement weather over the month of January.

Superintendent Steve Barker informed parents of the decision in a letter sent to Coweta families on February 4:

“Dear Parents,

It has been a pleasure to welcome students and employees back to school following last week’s inclement weather. I know that many of you have called with questions about making up the missed school days. Also, many have expressed concern about currently scheduled school holidays.

Due to the fact that the Coweta County Board of Education has maintained a full 180-day school calendar for instruction, we will not need to schedule additional instructional days for students to meet state requirements. Our school system’s holidays will remain as scheduled.

Thank you for your patience as we have reviewed our options concerning this matter. Hopefully, we will not encounter any additional inclement weather during the remainder of the school year.”
