Local school kids hope for snow days during the winter months. But soon they may change their minds. In Zanesville, Tuesday’s day off brings the total to six which is over the number of calamity days allotted in the school calendar. According to the state legislature, school must be in session 175 days out of the 180 day schedule. Since the school district reached its maximum of calamity days with the previous cancellation on January 7th, the district must now make up days during spring break. At this point in the Zanesville school district Pleasant Grove elementary school is the only facility that has not used all of its calamity days. They were the only school open on September 13th when the city of Zanesville had a major water main break. Other school districts across Southeastern Ohio are facing a similar problem with calamity days.
