Putnam Schools Have 6 Stockpile Days Left For School Closures

Putnam County Schools used three more snow days this week bringing the total to seven days of missed school.

Deputy Director of Schools Tim Martin said the district has six days remaining for school closures.

“Last couple of years, we’ve actually used one or two snow days before Christmas,” Martin said. “This year, we didn’t use any snow days before Christmas. Even though we used a lot all at one time last week, I think we are in pretty good shape.”

Schools start the year with 13 weather days. Martin said the district create these days by attending school 30 extra minutes a day. Martin said in the event all stockpile days are used, school officials usually shorten spring break.
