Last night on the recommendation of Superintendent Nolan, the Sachem Board of Education decided to trim four days away from upcoming vacation time to account for instructional days that were lost as a result of Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent nor'easter.
As a result of the passed measure, Sachem Schools will be open during February break from Tuesday, February 19 through Friday, February 22, and also on Monday, April 1.
The four days cuts a deep gash into what is usually a fairly lengthy winter break for students and parents. Our Talk Back discussion today is obvious. Do you agree with the decision the Board of Education made?
