School’s out again in Spotsylvania
By now, you’ve probably noticed that Spotsylvania County schools are closed. That means Spotsylvania students are enjoying a five-day break. Schools were closed on Friday for a teacher workday and on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
By my count, this is the third full day students have been off this school year. That means they’ll be using three of their make-up days, those scheduled for Jan. 31, Feb. 11 and Feb. 21. The division scheduled five days for possible make-up use. The others are in March and April.
Be careful if you venture outside today.
