Spartanburg District Five students will now attend school on Monday, February 18, after missing school on Thursday, October 11, due to a tropical storm warning related to Hurricane Michael. Originally designated as a teacher workday on the district calendar, District Five students are now required to attend class on that day.
Also noted on the district calendar, March 29 and June 3 remain as potential make-up days. Should the district have additional weather-related closures this school year, students could be required to attend school on those days. State law requires that school districts utilize at least three make-up days (if needed), before any additional days can be "forgiven" by local school boards.
