Even though the number of storm days so far this school year has been âhigh compared to the last number of years,â it isnât yet a cause for too much concern yet, according to Annapolis Valley Regional School Board superintendent Margo Tait.
Tait reported at the boardâs April 2 meeting in Berwick there had been 12 storm days in Annapolis County, 11 in Kings County and 10 in West Hants so far this year.
âThere have been other years weâve had that many, but not since 2008-2009,â she said, adding that she felt the number of storm days was âdefinitely above average.â
The superintendent said the focus, especially now, is to maximize learning time for students.
âWeâre asking administrators, teachers and school staff to be cautious in making decisions that impact instruction time,â for the remainder of the school year. That means, she said, âsome of the ânice to doâ things might need to wait.â
