BAR HARBOR — Students in the Mount Desert Island Regional School System will be in class for two additional half-days in March to make up for school closures due to recent snowstorms if the school board approves Superintendent Howard Colter’s recommendations.
Students would be in school the morning of Monday, March 9. Parent-teacher conferences would be held in the afternoon. Conferences that can’t fit into that time period would be held later in the week. The school calendar currently calls for that entire day to be set aside for parent-teacher conferences.
Friday, March 27, was supposed to be reserved for teachers’ professional development. But Colter is recommending that students attend classes that morning, with professional development in the afternoon.
