The winter weather this past season has resulted in students in Brighton Area Schools having to make up one school day.

A district communication was issued by Brighton Superintendent Gray Gray informing parents that the snow day held on Friday, March 2nd pushed them over the limit allotted by the State of Michigan by one. As a district, Gray says they’ve selected Monday, April 2nd as the make-up day. It will be a regular full school day as if previously scheduled.

Barring any future snow days, Gray says that will get the district back on track with the required days and clock hours needed for the 2017/2018 school year. Gray stressed attendance on Monday will be crucial as they need 75% attendance, both as a district and by individual building to be able to count the day. If they are not able to reach that number, then the day will not count and they’ll have to schedule another make up day. (JM)
