Updates to the county inclement weather policy

Sections taken from an email from Matt Haas, Assistant Superintendent:


As explained in the current school calendar, it will not be necessary to make up our first two lost days because we still will be able to meet the state department of education’s requirement of 990 instructional hours. If we have to close schools for more than two days, we will extend the end of the school calendar year.


As always, the division will notify parents, guardians and staff as soon as possible through e-mail and phone messages when it is necessary to close school. You also can call our hotline at (434) 296-5886 or visit our School Closings web page for up-to-date information, or better yet, follow the school division on Twitter at www.twitter.com/k12albemarle or “Like” us on Facebook atwww.facebook.com/k12albemarle.

Ice Cream!

Students are able to buy ice cream at lunch on Thursdays for 75 cents. Any money for the cafeteria should be put in the ziplock back with your child's name found in homework folders.
