New Furlough Date: Dec. 21
The Cherokee County School District initially selected Oct. 26 as one of eight furlough days. It is now a school day.
Adjust your calendars, Cherokee County School District parents, students and staff.
Oct. 26, previously one of eight furlough days, is now a school day. And Dec. 21 is now a furlough day.
"The October date initially was selected for one of the eight required furlough days, as no other school holidays already were scheduled for that month," Cherokee Superintendent Frank Petruzielo said in a letter to parents. "However, parents/guardians, staff and School Board Members have since communicated that the December date would be preferable due to the Christmas holiday’s proximity to the start of Winter Break."
Winter break begins Dec. 24.
"If parents/guardians already have scheduled medical appointments for students for the October date, such absences will be excused in accordance with existing policy," Petruzielo said.
