Hurricane Florence: Schools announce makeup days


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Local school districts are announcing school makeup days after the threat of Hurricane Florence prompted closures. 

Virginia Beach City Public Schools

Virginia Beach will have virtual learning days on Oct. 8, Nov. 6 and Jan. 28. The days will make up for three of the four days missed due to Florence. The fourth day was waived by using time built into the 181-day school calendar. 

Hampton City Public Schools

Beginning October 1, 2018, ten additional minutes will be added to the end of each school day through the remainder of the year.

December 19, February 15 and May 24, will now be full school days for all students and staff. These dates were originally early close days.

Chesapeake City Public Schools 

Five additional minutes will be added to the high school instructional day for the first semester beginning on Monday, September 24, 2018, and ending on Friday, January 25, 2019. 

If any additional events impact our schedule during first semester, additional calendar adjustments may need to be made.
