Classes to cut into summer break for Greenville Public Schools

GREENVILLE, Mich.--  At least one West Michigan school district is already extending its academic year, because of the recent winter storms.

Greenville Superintendent Peter Haines sent a letter home to parents Monday, explaining how the district will handle the recent spate of school cancellations.  In the letter, Haines writes, “This has certainly been a winter unlike most in the last several years.”

Haines says the school calendar has been updated to extend classes into the second week of June, to regain some of the lost days. Haines says the academic calendar may be extended again if more inclement weather hits, causing more school closings.  He says it could be as late as April until the district has a finalized calendar.

Greenville Public Schools cancelled classes every day last week, because of the snow and extremely cold temperatures.
