When Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina, WCS missed seven days of school. Add in the day we missed for Hurricane Michael, and we have missed a week and a half of instructional days so far this school year. We were fortunate to have minimal damage to our campus and miss no more school than we did.
The administration builds a few days of leeway into our calendar every year to ensure that we meet the academic standards set forth by the North Carolina Department of Non-public Instruction even when we miss a few days for inclement weather; just last week, the NC Legislature also confirmed a bill providing schools flexibility in making up missed instructional days. As a result of these two measures, WCS will not have to make up the school days missed for Hurricane Florence.
