Extraneous Events Force Schools To Extend Year 4-01-2011

The school year will be extended for all students at Lapeer Community Schools because the number of school days that were canceled this year, for reasons beyond the school district's control, exceeded the six days allowed by the state.
The school district sent a letter home to parents on Friday to inform them of the extension.
On Monday, several buses were vandalized after the air was let out of dozens of tires, which forced the district to close for the day. The district also had several snow days due to inclement weather. The district did not associate any of these events with the reason for the extension.
The news release went on to sate that the number of days of canceled instruction were not consistent throughout the 12 buildings and the last day of school for students will not be the same across the district.
The district said that in accordance with state regulations, the last day of school for students will be as follows:
Friday, June 10 – Community High School, East High School
Monday, June 13 – All elementary schools, West High School, Zemmer Middle School
Tuesday, June 14 – Rolland-Warner Middle School
Lapeer Community Schools communications specialist Mike Arnholt said that for the district to avoid financial penalties, daily attendance rates in each of the buildings must be maintained.
"We appreciate your cooperation as we make adjustments to comply with state mandates regarding student attendance," said Arnholt.
