Make-up schedule for February snow storm announced

Renton schools posted on Monday that they need to make up five snow days, extending current trimester.

The Renton School District recently released its plan to make up for the heavy snow storm in early February that resulted in five full days of school missed.

The current high school trimester will be extended to end on Friday, March 22. It was originally set for Friday, March 15. The district switched high schools to trimester’s this year to help with graduation rates.

The district will also be using scheduled snow make-up day Tuesday, May 28 and add one day to the end of the year, Friday, June 21.

Renton schools posted to the website that it’s working with Renton’s teacher union and union partners to determine the other three days. The school district is also currently determining what Governor Jay Inslee’s declared state of emergency during the snow storm means for make-up days, and if they could be waived.

The snow days cannot be made up during spring break, because breaks are bargained in contract negotiations with staff unions, according to the district. They will also keep March 18 as a non-student day for teacher training.

High school graduation ceremonies will remain on schedule, according to the school district.
