Goshen Schools to shorten spring break for snow make-up


Goshen students will spend a little less time on Spring Break this year.

Goshen Community Schools announced on Thursday they plan to use April 3 and 4 to make up snow days.

Goshen students had been originally scheduled to be on Spring Break from Wednesday, April 2 to Friday, April 11. The district had already announced they would be using April 2 as a makeup day. Thursday's announcement means Spring Break will be Monday, April 7 through Friday, April 11.

District officials say there were suggestions they use President's Day and Good Friday as make-up days, but they can't be used due to contract obligations.

The district has already received a waiver from the state to excuse two other missed days.

With plenty of winter still left, there is still a chance of more closures. The district says there are not many options that remain for make-up days, so they are asking people to be flexible.

Goshen make-up days:

February 14
March 17
April 2
April 3
April 4
June 4
June 5
June 6
