The board for the School District of Pickens County has voted to forgive two snow days last week.
The district was closed Jan. 17 and 18 as snow moved through the Upstate and left behind icy roads. These were the fourth and fifth days the district missed this year due to inclement weather.
The three prior days will be made up in March and April.
