EPS has had several inclement weather days so far this school year; January 14 (Covid related), February 2, 3, 4 23, 24, 25, and March 11.
On four of the days, school was canceled and remote instruction was not required.
The District had two days built into the school calendar for these types of days. To meet the state law required 1080 hours of yearly instruction, two of the early February days have to be made up.
The following plan was approved to make up the two days:
April 15 is a Remote Learning Day
Day 1 – Friday, April 15, or “April Day” on the school calendar is now an asynchronous remote learning day for all students. Asynchronous learning means that students will not be required to “check-in” at a certain time on Friday and will have a window of time to complete their work. April Day 2022 Parent Info
Day 2 – 10 minutes of instructional time (5 minutes at the beginning of the day and 5 minutes at the end of the day) was added to the beginning Monday, March 21. The minutes gained make up for a lost instructional day.

Early Start: 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Late Start: 9:15 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
