Monday, Feb. 17 is Make-Up Day for Most GCS Students
This is the make-up day for Friday, Feb. 7 which was missed due to inclement weather
Greensboro, N.C. – Monday, Feb. 17, is the make-up day for most GCS students for the instructional day that was missed due to inclement weather on Friday, Feb. 7. The day was previously identified as a mandated teacher workday.
Students who attend three of the four 20-day extended-year schools do not have to make-up the missed days. These schools include Allen Jay Middle, Johnson Street Global Studies and Washington Montessori. The day remains a mandated workday for teachers at these schools.
Brooks Global Studies students will make up all inclement weather days in 2019-20 due to the school’s late start in August. As such, Feb. 17 becomes a student make-up day for Brooks Global students.
The 2019-20 school calendars may be found here<www.gcsnc.com/Page/2#calendar1/20200211/month> on the GCS website.
