SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Sevier County students went to class on Presidents' Day to make up for so many days missed because of inclement weather.
The county Board of Education decided to send students to class over a scheduled Mid-Winter Break to gain some ground back from 12 days missed this school year. Students missed on Friday but were able to make up the time on Monday.
District spokesperson, Debra A. Cline, says the district hopes to get a full week of class in and finish up written assessments started last week.
"We also hope that we'll have a good instructional day today and we'll have a good instructional week with the weather improving. So that our kids can be back in school on a regular and consistent basis," said said Cline.
Sevier County budgets in 13 inclement weather days each year, the district now has 2 days left after making up a day on Monday.
