CHICAGO — Chicago Public Schools students will have to wait an extra day to begin their summer break this year.
CPS has scheduled two makeup days for the two cold weather days in early January, CPS officials said.
On Jan. 6 and Jan. 7, snow and frigid temperatures forced CPS to cancel classes. "To ensure students receive the valuable instructional time that was intended" for those days, CPS has scheduled the two makeup days, including one that will delay summer break for a day.
Jan. 30, which was scheduled to be a School Improvement Day without classes, will now be a regular attendance day for all CPS students, officials said.
June 17, which was supposed to be the first day of summer break, will also be a regular attendance day. Summer break will begin June 18 instead.
