Calamity Days Exceed State Allocation

The calamity day on February 14th was the sixth day for the Painesville Township Local School District.  The State allows five (5) calamity days each school year.  After the five days are exceeded, make-up school days are required. 

Since the district has closed more than five days, and in compliance with the Board of Education approved 2006-2007 District Calendar, the first make-up day is scheduled to commence on Thursday, June 7, 2007.  At this time the district has one required make-up day while Leroy Elementary has two days to make-up - June 7th and 8th

 Dear Painesville Township Local School District Parents/Guardians,

The winter season is upon us and the potential for snow and challenging weather conditions are a possibility.  The decision to close school is always made with student safety as our first priority.  Road conditions, weather forecasts, and reports by local authorities are all considered when making this decision.  Every attempt is made to decide by 5:30am.  Should it become necessary to close schools due to inclement weather, the closing will be broadcast over local television and radio stations as well as the district website (www.townshipschools.com).

If the schools are not closed during challenging winter weather conditions, the ultimate decision as to whether it is safe for students to travel to school rests with parents/guardians.  

Please contact your child’s school if weather conditions do not, in your judgment, permit your child to travel safely to school. Your child’s absence will be excused.  This approach offers parents/guardians the opportunity to make a decision they believe to be in the best interest of their child in the event that school remains open on a questionable weather day.  When calling your child’s school office, please indicate your decision to keep your child home was based on the weather conditions.

If the Painesville Township Local Schools are closed, all programs, services, and activities for that day are cancelled, and the Field House is closed as well.  In the event schools are forced to close more than five days, make-up days will commence on Thursday, June 7, 2007.
