Floyd County Superintendent Dr. Henry Webb announced that all schools will be in session April 9th and 10th and will be extending the school day by 45 minutes beginning Monday, March 30th. This extended day will continue until the end of the school year.
Dr. Webb commented, “This winter has certainly given us some opportunities and our KIDS have only had 27 days of instruction from Christmas break until this week. As this was similar to last year, we once again posted a survey asking for input from students, parents, staff and community members and once again received numerous replies with the majority wanting to attend school during spring break.”
Webb continues, “In addition, we are adding time to the school day with 15 minutes added to the morning and 30 minutes added to the afternoon. We want to soften the impact an extended day can have on our students who work and/or are involved in our extracurricular activities.” Superintendent Webb ended with, “If you ‘ll recall, we made similar changes last year and our KIDS made Floyd County Schools #12 in the state.”
These changes in our calendar makes May 22nd the last day for students in most schools.
AES will start at 7:45am, and end at 3:15pm
