At this point, it appears that our schools have enough student contact time built into their existing schedules to absorb the loss of the two instructional days last week without the need to schedule additional student contact days or add minutes to existing contact days. There will be a need to arrange for the make-up of lost time for certain programs at Marchman Technical College, and the specifics of this make-up time will be communicated to impacted students and staff shortly.

Please be aware that should any additional student contact time be lost this semester, the District will likely be forced to explore make-up options which may include adding student contact days to the week of Thanksgiving or adding additional time to existing student contact days. We hope that we do not need to face that situation, as we know that any such changes would be a disruption for students, staff, and parents.
