Last week’s snowy weather won’t affect next week’s mid-winter break, says Snoqualmie Valley School District spokesperson, Carolyn Malcolm.

Classes at all schools in the district were canceled last Monday and Tuesday because of snowy conditions Monday, and icy conditions Tuesday. Schools had a two-hour late start on Wednesday, also because of icy conditions.

None of these days will result in a shortened mid-winter break, scheduled for Feb. 20 to 24 in the district. Instead, the district has designated six days in June as potential make-up days, if needed. Those make-up days are June 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23.

Currently, the last day of school is scheduled for June 15, with Two Rivers graduation scheduled on June 7 and Mount Si’s on June 9.
