River Bend board designates make-up days for snow emergencies


Several employees stated that “making up snow days on holidays is unfair to those that would otherwise get paid for those holidays” in their responses on the survey, a concern that Portz said would not be affected by the school board’s decision.

“If we held school on a day that is marked as a holiday then we’re going to pay them,” Portz said.

“So, they would be paid for the work day and for the holiday,” added Holliday.

Despite an uneven vote, 4-2, the River Bend School Board decided to accept the recommendation from the superintendent and designate four days of spring break and Polaski Day as make-up days for school emergency cancelations, also siding with many of the 57 percent of employees who voted against the days being made up at the end of the year.
