Forecast is for school on Saturdays


For the first time in years, the Beaufort County School District has scheduled Saturdays as planned make-up days for inclement weather. The decision came after students missed eight days for Hurricane Matthew in 2016. This news didn’t sit well with some parents who complained a Saturday school day would be inconvenient. District officials commented that other states and school districts deal with make up days this way. The school board has been criticized for not seeking public or employee input before scheduling the inclement weather make up days.
