School District Scraps President's Day Holiday
Feb. 18 will make up for Monday's school closings because of winter weather. Bethlehem Area School District snow days were already used up by Superstorm Sandy.
Thanks to Monday morning’s snow, the Bethlehem Area School District has rescheduled Presidents Day, Feb. 18, as a regular day of school.
District Superintendent Joseph Roy made the announcement via Twitter on Monday night. “There’s no such thing as a free lunch,” he tweeted.
Bethlehem Area Schools were closed because of the winter storm that briefly blanketed the region in snow and then ice on Monday.
But the district had already used its planned allotment of snow days when Superstorm Sandy caused widespread power outages in late October, forcing the district to cancel classes for a week.
