Long weekend for Fairfax students starts tomorrow afternoon

Will Your Kids Ever Go Back to School? We’ll Tell You When. This article in the Herndon, VA Patch has the subhead: “Short day Thursday starts a VERY long weekend for Fairfax students.”

This year Fairfax shortened the number of days in the school year. Should this shortened number of days be continued next year? It would be better to plan for 183 days in the school year to allow for some snow days. It is predictable that Fairfax will have three or more snow days most years. Even though Fairfax meets the alternative state requirement of at least 990 hours in the school year, it is not overly ambitious to seek to achieve 180 days in school on average.
