---- — This winter has certainly brought a wealth of school delays and snow days for schools within Rush and surrounding counties. Each year, Rush County Schools makes provisions for these events in an effort to stay within the published academic calendar. The three proposed built in make-up days for the 2013-14 calendar year are: Feb. 17, April 18 and April 21, 2014.
As of Jan. 24, all three built in make-up days have been utilized. We have missed a total of five days to date (Dec. 6, Jan. 8, 9, 21, 23). Therefore all Rush County Schools will be in session on the built in make-up days plus two additional days:
Feb.17 (make up Dec. 6)
April 18 and 21 (make up Jan. 8 and 9)
May 23 (make up Jan. 21)
May 27 (make up Jan. 23)
Additional make-up days will be added to the end of the year as needed. All schools will be informed of any needed further calendar changes through their school newsletters and web pages. Also current information is available on the Rush County School Corporation page at http://rcs.rushville.k12.in.us/.
