Bye Bye Days Off, School Board Approves Irma Makeup Days

News Palm Beach County Schools

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Those days off from school on October 16, November 3rd and January 8th are now school days, following a unanimous vote by the Palm Beach County School Board.
Palm Beach County students missed more than a week of school in the run up to, and days after, Hurricane Irma.
Teachers were originally slated for “in service” days but will now have to work three full days teaching.
This change notably shortens the extensive winter break by a day.
