"Despite those efforts, an unprecedented 12 student instructional days have been lost due to brutal weather conditions and we have had to consider all options for making up lost instructional time," said Superintendent Rob Haworth in a written statement.

The district will add six days onto the end of the school year, making the new last day of school June 6.  They will also stop early dismissal on Wednesdays.  Elkhart schools had been dismissing 45 minutes early fir teacher collaboration and training.
