Administrators at Riverview School District announced last week that the school year would be extended in the Lower Valley district, to make up for four days of school cancellations due to weather earlier this school year.
Classes were canceled in the Riverview District Dec. 9, Jan. 10, and Feb. 6 and 7 due to snow and icy conditions. As a result, four days have been added to the end of the school calendar, June 22, 23, 26 and 27. The last day of school will be Tuesday, June 27. Graduation for the class of 2017 remains scheduled on June 16.
Districts are required to have a minimum of 180 school days and 1,027 hours of class per year. When school is cancelled, because of snow or other weather-related conditions, those days and hours of instruction are still required per Washington state law.
