Snow Day in May
King George County students will get an extra day off this month. The School Board last night voted to change May 25 from a half day to a full-day off, because the division didn’t use the snow days it built into the calendar. School Board member Rick Randall worried that parents wouldn’t have enough time to make child-care arrangements for that day, but member John Davis countered: “Our teachers are teachers, not daycare providers.”
The School Board also announced that members are getting closer to selecting a new superintendent. Chairman Mike Rose said that they expect to announce the new hire by June 1. The candidate pool has now been narrowed to “less than five,” Rose said. But Randall hinted that the School Board may already have made a decision.
