Lexington-Richland 5 school district announced plans on Thursday to make up a second day missed earlier this month because of flooding.
The district’s students will now report to school on Nov. 9, which was previously a student holiday. The district already made up one of the five days it missed because of flooding, holding school on Oct. 12.
Lexington-Richland 5 spokeswoman Katrina Goggins said the district will make up more than the two days already announced. A decision on when to add more makeup days, based on any more inclement weather closures, will come later, the district said in a press release.
Three potential makeup days the district can use are March 25, April 18 and June 3.
Never miss a local story.
Lexington 1 has not yet announced whether or when it will make up the five days it missed because of flooding, said district spokeswoman Mary Beth Hill. That announcement will probably come Monday, she said.
Lexington 2 already made up one of the five days it missed, but the district hasn’t yet decided whether or when to make up the remaining four days. The district’s school board will discuss that next Tuesday, Lexington 2 spokeswoman Kay Joseph said.
Lexington 3 in Batesburg-Leesville and Lexington 4 in Gaston and Swansea missed two days because of flooding and plan to make up both. Lexington 3 will make up its missed days on Feb. 15 and April 22, and Lexington 4 will make up the days on Feb. 12 and March 25.
Richland 1’s school board this week approved plans to make up all seven days its schools were closed because of flooding. Richland 2 has plans to make up four of the five days it missed, but the district hasn’t yet determined whether to make up or waive the fifth day, spokeswoman Libby Roof has said.
