Algona public school Students received good news this week when Supt. 0. B. Laing (announced it would not be necessary for them to attend any extra days of school at the end of the regular school year to make up for eight days lost during recent storms. Days lost Were Dec; 12, Jan, 10, Feb. 19 and 21 and Mar. 5, 13, 14 and 18. '. According to Supt, Laing, four of the days haVe been (or will have been) made Up by the end of the school year.-They" include two "surplus" days on the original calendar for the school year, last Saturday when sessions were held and the Monday after Easter, Apr'. 23/v The remaining four days of shortage are acceptable under State Dept. of Education rules as long as the school district (or any in the state) does not end its school year prior to May 31. Algona's original schedule ends May 31. The actual number of days required by the State Dept. each year is 179, plus one day for County Institute, or a total of 180 days. The 175, plus one, is okay, however, when the May 31 closing date is considered. However, all of the good news depends upon whether' any other storms move into (his area in the next few weeks nnd canse torthef cancetfatlfln of school, IB 'siich 8 eaWit^ would probably %e fteeessfirV to hold classes after May 31, Under state rales, nidte thin five days of scli6bl classes lit \ a week are prohibited, so even Saturday classes are not proper, unless* as last week, at least one day of classes has • \ been called off. So Saturday's classes here were all right *• except in the minds of students. At any rate, under state rules it is possible to make some allowance for school days lost due to bad weather -» and the local district is fortunate to have had a couple of extra days included in its original schedule — a practice that has been followed here for several years.
