School Board anticipated flooding


By Ryan Cornell

Public schools in Shenandoah County were closed Friday, as floodwaters covered roads and made some bus routes impassable.

Following the rough winter weather experienced earlier this year, the Shenandoah County School Board warned of likely flooding on several occasions and urged for additional instructional time as a precaution. For this reason, the board had added June 13 as a make-up day to its instructional calendar.

Division Superintendent Jeremy Raley said that even after Friday's school closings, the division still has enough instructional hours to meet the state-required minimum of 990 hours. He added that he doesn't anticipate any make-up days added in the future.

"We had data," he said. "There have been years we have missed time in April and May as a result of spring rains. We wanted to be prepared for it and I'm glad we were."
