Students have missed school days Jan. 28 through Jan. 29 and Feb. 12 through 14 due to inclement winter weather. Students’ first make-up day was Feb. 17. The day a lot of students dread is the next make up day, which is on March 28.

“I do not want to make up any snow days,” Sophomore Deborah Bishop said.

What a lot of students fear is their spring break may be taken away because of the days they would have to make up. Students have missed a total of five days due to the harsh weather.

“School boards around South Carolina will be able to decide whether to hold make up days for five additional snow days due to this winter’s storms that cancelled school across the state,” according to Jeremy Borden’s article “S.C. Legislature allows make-up snow days due to winter storms” from the Charleston Post and Courier.

The decision cannot be achieved until it gets a signature from Gov. Nikki Haley.

When students came back after being out of school for the severe weather, a lot of classes were behind on some work that needed to be done. It was kind of stressful for some teachers. Some students were glad there was severe weather because they did not want to be in school, but they dread the make-up days.

“I don’t think we should have them because we are in school for a long time already,” Junior Candace Stribling said.

Plenty of students do not want any more inclement weather because they were bored and stuck in the house all day because of the dangerous roads.

“I don’t think we should have to make up days because of the weather, which we have no control over,” Junior Angela Staley said.
