Winter Weather Wipes Away School District's Snow Days

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- This winter has brought icy storms and snowy weather, leaving many schools with two-hour delays or closings.

One Valley school district is already out of snow days.

Dr. Linda Reviea, the superintendent for Staunton Public Schools, said if they have any more bad weather, they will need to start making up the school days.

They will either need to have classes on staff work days, shorten spring break or add days on to the end of the school year.

Reviea said in the past it is not common for Staunton to go over their make-up days.

Dawn Young, the principal at Beverly Manor Elementary School in Staunton, said, although two-hour delays help children stay safe, it can sometimes create problems for parents.

"There is nobody here to receive kids and so that creates a problem for parents because they need to find quick child care so that they can get to work on time. So, I think that is a huge impact for our parents," said Young.

Dr. Scott Kizner, the superintendent of Harrisonburg City Schools, said they still have three more snow days left to use this winter.
