While N.E. Ohio is currently experience more mild weather than this region's climate typically dictates, this school year LaBrae Local Schools will plan on using a two hour delay schedule for classes when weather conditions warrant the delayed start. We encourage families to make advance preparations for transportation and child care for those days when a delayed start is announced. Two hour delay announcements and school cancellations will be announced via the school district's phone messaging system, the District Twitter account and Viking Nation. Also, please remember that the LaBrae Board of Education has declared Monday, March 28th and Tuesday, March 29th as days for making up missed hours of instruction. Should LaBrae cancel more than five days of school prior to these dates, the aforementioned dates, which are currently included in the Easter holiday recess, will be used as make up dates.
Moreover, LaBrae wants to inform our families of two upcoming calendar adjustments that will occur in February 2016. An early release has been added to Thursday, February 11, 2016, which is the scheduled day for parent-teacher conferences. For the winter parent conferences, LaBrae is returning to conferences in all buildings being held on the same evening. Further, LaBrae will be adding an additional day of professional development for teachers on Tuesday, February 16, 2016, which was originally scheduled as a student day of attendance. Thus, classes will not be in session on Friday, February 12th, and classes will resume on Wednesday, February 17th.
