SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Some Upstate schools are scheduling a makeup day after damage and power outages from Tropical Storm Irma prompted many school districts to cancel classes.

Two Spartanburg County Schools have announced dates in February thus far:

  • Spartanburg District 5: Feb. 19, 2018
  • Spartanburg District 3: Feb. 19, 2018

Spartanburg County District 5 Schools released the following details on the makeup day:

Due to time missed from school on Monday, September 11, because of Hurricane Irma, Spartanburg District Five Schools will have a make-up day on Monday, February 19.  Originally scheduled as a teacher workday, students will now attend class on that day.

As noted on the district calendar, March 30 and June 1 remain as potential make-up days.  Should the district have additional weather-related closures this school year, students could be required to attend school on those days.  State law requires that school districts utilize at least three make-up days (if needed), before any additional days can be “forgiven” by local school boards.

Below is the statement from Spartanburg District 3:

Spartanburg County School District Three has scheduled February 19, 2018 as a makeup day for September 11.  Schools were closed on that date due to severe weather from Hurricane Irma.

February 19 was originally scheduled as a teacher workday.  The district has three additional days built into the calendar as potential makeup days.
