With only one snow day remaining in the 2013-14 school year, Roane County Director of Schools Gary Aytes is hoping spring is right around the corner.
“I didn’t think we would use this many,” Aytes said. “Hopefully these weather patterns will stop now.”
Roane County students attend school seven hours per day in order to stockpile 13 extra days into the school year.
Two of the days are used for staff development, and the other 11 are for inclement weather.
