The Scoop


Verbatim: FWCS schools out Friday, Monday

Statement issued Tuesday by Fort Wayne Community Schools:

Students will have a four-day weekend this week, starting with a day off on Friday, Jan. 15.

The day was reserved on the school calendar as an end of semester/make-up day. If FWCS needed to cancel a day of school because of weather conditions, Jan. 15 was built in as a make-up day. So far, that hasn’t happened so students will not be in school. If, by chance, there is a cancellation between now and Friday, students will have to attend on Friday. Students are off on Monday, Jan. 18, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Staff, including teachers, administrators and others, will be in the buildings on Friday, Jan. 15. Additional built-in make-up days are scheduled for May 14 and 28 and June 9.
