The LaBrae Local School District is required by the State of Ohio to make-up any calamity days beyond five days. This past winter season, the district used a total of six calamity days. Therefore, the district needs to make-up one school day. This make-up day has been added to the end of the school calendar, thus adjusting the student's last day of school. The make-up day and student's last day of school is now Friday, May 30, 2014. Also, as a reminder, this is an early release day for the district.
