Pocono Mountain School District students may not have to make up the six days they were off due to the two back-to-back winter storms.
The district says it applied to the Pennsylvania Department of Education School Services Unit for a waiver of those days and have received a tentative approval.
However, the waiver isn't finalized until a formal letter of approval is received.
Pocono Mountain says this will allow its students to not make up the six days the schools were closed due to the storms, "as long as our students can complete the state required 900 hours for elementary and 990 hours for secondary students."
The district says its students should not have to make up these days as it always includes "many more hours" in its school year calendar than what is required.
