This winter has been harsh. Many difficult decisions have had to made related to school delays,
early dismissals and cancellations. I would like to thank our students, staff, and parents for their
support and understanding of the many disruptions we have experienced. I would also like to thank
our transportation staff who safely transport our student daily, often in challenging conditions.
Our administrative team collaborated to come up with a plan to make-up some of the eighty-two
hours of time that we have missed. The Grundy Center School Board approved the plan at their
February 20th meeting. The Iowa Department of Education requires a minimum of 1080 hours of
instruction. Our district does build in additional instructional hours to our annual school calendar
above and beyond what is required by state statute. As a result, we will not need to make up all of
the hours or days missed.

March 29, 2019 Full Day +6.5 Currently no school
April 3, 2019 Full Day +2.5 Currently early out
April 19, 2019 Early out +4.0 Currently no school
April 22, 2019 Full Day +6.5 Currently no school
May 15, 2019 Full Day +2.5 Currently early out
May 30, 2019 Full Day +2.5 Currently early out
May 31, 2019 Full Day +6.5 Currently no school
June 3, 2019 Full Day +6.5 Currently no school
June 4, 2019 Full Day +6.5 Currently no school
June 5, 2019 Early Out +4.0 Currently no school

If weather does not
cooperate and we miss
additional hours the plan
would be to add June
6th, June 7th and March
22 (Friday of Spring
Break) in that order to
get us to the 1080 hours
requirement. The last
day of school could also
be made into a full day if
necessary.
