Parents Voice Opinions to Hopkins School Board at Town Hall Meeting

schoolmeetingMADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/10/14) - What is there to do about all the snow days?

Members of the Hopkins County Board of Education answered this and other tough questions posed by parents and other community members Monday at a Town Hall Meeting at James Madison Middle School.

Superintendent Linda Zellich says she will never take Spring Break away from students and teachers, but the decision to use make-up days will ultimately be up to the Kentucky General Assembly.

According to Kentucky law, students must be in school 170 days a year, but the inclement weather is making it harder for school systems all around Kentucky to obey the requirement.

“This winter is going to change a lot for Kentucky with attendance (laws),” said Zellich.

Feb. 17 and March 26, once days off for Hopkins County students, are now being used as make-up days.
