Long weekend coming up for Spotsy students; flexible teacher workday coming in April
Spotsylvania County students will have a four-day weekend this Friday through Monday thanks to two teacher work days.
Teachers will be expected in school those days but on April 6, the next teacher work day, Superintendent Shelley K. Redinger is giving them the option of working from home.
In her announcement to 10-month employees, Dr. Redinger said the move was “an effort to support staff.”
April 6 is the Friday before the division’s week-long spring break.
Some teachers had asked in the past to be able to work from home on a teacher workday but it had not been allowed.
