March 13 is a make-up day for Fulton County students | Schools
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -- It's some news that may not be warmly received by students in Fulton County Schools.
The district announced Tuesday that next Friday, Mar. 13 will be a make-up day. It was originally supposed to be a teacher workday and a day off for students, but four days of weather-related school cancellations in February resulted in the need for an extra day.
"This is a critical time of year for students to be in school. There is a lot to be done in the next three months, and our students and teachers need every instructional day," Fulton County Schools Superintendent Robert Avossa said in a release.
Avossa said the rest of the school year calendar, including spring break and graduation, is not impacted.
