School District of Onalaska won’t make up days missed due to winter weather

School board votes to forgive missed days

The Onalaska School District will *not make up lost school days from this winter.

The School Board voted unanimously Monday night in favor of forgiving the District’s five missed days.

It’s only possible because the District already schedules more class time than required by the state and they still meet that requirement at this point.

However, any more missed days will have to be made up at the end of the school year.

“You never know what happens in the middle of March, we’ve had inclement weather days in the past, where we get dumped on with a bunch of snow and the plows aren’t out,” said School District of Onalaska superintendent Fran Finco.

Onalaska canceled five school days so far this year.
