CYNTHIANA, Ky. — Harrison County Students will be in class during the week of April 7-11, the time frame formerly slotted for the district’s Spring Break.

In a special meeting Wednesday, March 5, the Harrison County Board of Education voted unanimously to use those five days against the 22 which have been missed due to weather issues.

The change was necessitated by the latest batch of winter weather, which moved through the area Sunday night.

This move allows the district to keep June 6 as the last day for students instead of moving into the second week of June. Since three days were missed this week, the last day otherwise would have been June 13.

Harrison County Schools Superintendent Andy Dotson said using Spring Break in this regard was the best option.

“It would, at this point, be the right thing to do,” he said.

Harrison County Schools have missed 22 days as of March 5, the most in the past 20 years. The closest number of missed days during that time frame is a three-way tie at 17 in the 1993-94, 1995-96 and 2009-10 school years.

Before the days were missed this week, several changes had already been made to make up some of the snow days. Scheduled days off on Feb. 17, March 21 and March 28 had been reinstated to the calendar. Moving the last day from May 21 to June 6 provided a large boost in make up days.

As for any other make up days, nothing has been set in stone. For the time being, barring no other cancellations, there is no school on Memorial Day, May 26.

As of right now, the last day of school is Friday, June 6. It will be a full day and Harrison County High School’s graduation ceremony will be held that evening in the Harrison County Athletic Complex.

On Monday, February 24th, our students were treated to an assembly which taught them a little about the African culture. The group taught us a few words from their language. They played the drums and we learned a couple of dances from West Africa. Some of our students got to participate on the stage with the performers. Everyone got to learn the dances and about how their dances tell a story.
The performance was enjoyed by all (teachers, assistants, and students). What a great learning experience for our students!

Today we the 100th Day of School for the 2013-2014. Some of our students enjoyed learning today by doing lots of activities with the number 100.
