With so many days missed by Giles County students due to snow and illness, schools director Phillip Wright was asked how many days are left in this calendar year.

He said there are 13 days built in to each year that can be used for snow or sickness.  Wright said there are 4 days left in the year in case they are needed.

He emphasized there are many days remaining of winter and he hopes to use as few days as possible. He said if needed they can use the days that are left for spring break, but he said he hopes it doesn’t come to that.
