Please recall, San Saba ISD missed two days of school, one due to bad weather and one due to electrical outages, that will need to be made up. When the school calendar was constructed, the bad weather days were built in on Saturdays in May. The San Saba school board and administration feel that it would be much more beneficial to the district to make up those instructional days before TAKS time; therefore, the board voted to revise the school calendar. In order to make up the days, the board voted to change the OFYP days for high school and middle school. The OFYP day for February 25, will be moved to Saturday, March 26. That means that February 25 will now be an instructional day for everyone. Students required to attend the OFYP day and the elementary school will be attending school on Saturday, March 26. Elementary school must come to school on OFYP days anyway, so the only impact for them will be to attend school on Saturday, March 26.
The second bad weather day to be made up will be on April 15. It also is currently scheduled as an OFYP day, but it will now become an instructional day for everyone and the OFYP day will be moved to Saturday, April 16. Again, those required to attend OFYP and the elementary school will be attending school on Saturday, April 16. The district is applying for a waiver for the bad weather day that was caused by the electrical outage and if the state grants the waiver, this will be applied to the April date, thus keeping April 15 as OFYP.
Due to wanting to end the school year before the beginning of June, the bad weather days had to be placed on Saturdays. The bad weather days were always schedule on Saturdays, the only difference now is that they are moved up to provide more instruction days prior to the TAKS testing to come at the end of April. The District apologizes for any complications in scheduling, but decisions are made to provide the most instructional days possible prior to testing. Please call, Superintendent Leigh Ann Glaze if you have any question or contact the campus principal where your child attends school.
