Snow Days Make Up

From the Avonworth School District website:
The Avonworth School District School Board of Directors voted at the Monday, March 9, 2015 regular meeting to forgive the inclement weather makeup day for March 30, 2015.  Therefore, the spring break will be as follows: March 30 - April 3, 2015. School will be in session on Monday, April 6, 2015.
This calendar change is contingent on there being no further loss of instructional days due to inclement weather. Friday, March 27, 2015 remains a parent-teacher conference day in the current calendar.
