Hurricane Make-Up Days
DELAND —After a detailed analysis of all instructional minutes, it has been determined that VCS is able to absorb the lost time of the three Hurricane days within the existing schedule.
Some scheduling adjustments will have to be made to a few schools, but those will not impact the start and stop times of the school day or bus schedules.
If there are any future storm events that cause the loss of instructional time, the designated November days (November 25 and November 26) will be used to make-up the minutes, if the event occurs prior to those dates.
If an event should occur after November, then other actions would be considered. Once again, the instructional minutes from the three Hurricane days will be absorbed into the existing school calendar with no district wide changes to the standard operating procedures now in place.
