Pickens County Schools announces make-up days

Dragon's Corner, News

JASPER, Ga. – Pickens County Schools Superintendent Dr. Carlton Wilson announced in a press release on the school system’s website Saturday, Jan. 20, three scheduled make-up dates in February for missed school days as a result of recent winter weather.

We are very concerned with the academic time our students have missed during this very difficult winter. Our 2017-2018 school calendar includes three weather make-up days during Winter Break in February.

After much consideration, we have made the decision to make up three of of the 12 days our students have missed. The make-up dates are as follows:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018
  • Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018
  • Friday, Feb. 23, 2018

If we continue to miss school days for inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, we will have to consider the option to make up days during our 2018 Spring Break.

As always, our first priority is the safety and best interest of our students.

According to the Pickens County Schools website, the Pickens County Schools 2018 spring break mentioned in Wilson’s statement occurs Monday, April 2, through Friday, April 6.
