2018-2019 Snow Day Plan

So far in the 2018-2019 school year, we had to call four snow days here in the Affton School District. This would push the end of the school year into the last week of May.

On Tuesday, March 12, the Affton Board of Education approved a plan to move the last day of school back to Friday, May 24 and forgive three days missed due to inclement weather. The Board was able to forgive these days because the district’s calendar includes three more instructional days than required by Missouri statute.

Here is how we will address the days we missed and any additional snow days:

  • April 19:
    All students and teachers will have school on Friday, April 19. This was originally scheduled as a no-school day. 

  • May 17:
    As scheduled, Friday, May 17 will remain an Early Dismissal and ½ Record Day for grades Pre-K through 5 (AECC, Mesnier, and Gotsch ONLY). This will also be the last day for seniors at Affton High School.

  • May 23:
    Thursday, May 23 will be an Early Dismissal and ½ Record Day for grades 6 through 12 (RMS and AHS ONLY).

  • May 24:
    The last day for students and staff will be an Early Dismissal Day for all Affton Schools on Friday, May 24.

  • More Snow Days:
    We will not waive any other school days:
    • If we have to have a 5th snow day:
      • The Early Dismissal Day for grades 6 through 12 will move to Friday, May 24, and the last day will be an Early Dismissal Day on Tuesday, May 28. 
    • If we have to have a 6th snow day:
      • The Early Dismissal Day for grades 6 through 12 will move to Tuesday, May 28, and the last day will be an Early Dismissal Day on Wednesday, May 29. 
    • If we have to have a 7th snow day:
      • The Early Dismissal Day for grades 6 through 12 will move to Wednesday, May 29, and the last day will be an Early Dismissal Day on Thursday, May 30. 

  • Summer School and Camp Cougar:
    Summer school and Camp Cougar are currently scheduled to begin on Monday, June 3. If we have additional snow days it may be necessary to adjust the start date of these programs while still trying to be in session the same amount of total days. If the last day of school is adjusted due to more snow days we will continue to provide an update on the start date of these programs.
