April 24 will be a full day not an early-release day

Because students have lost five instructional days as a result of bad weather, the April 24 early-release day has been eliminated. April 24 will be a full school day for students.

“Teachers and administrators are working hard to prepare students for end-of-year assessments,” said Dr. Marcus Newsome, superintendent of Chesterfield County Public Schools. “They are making every minute count as they attempt to cover all of the required content before administering Standards of Learning, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and other tests. Making April 24 a full day of instruction should help.”

Students were out of school because of bad weather Oct. 22-23 (Hurricane Sandy),

Jan. 18, March 6 and March 25 (snow). Schools opened two hours late Jan. 24 and March 7 and dismissed students two hours early Jan. 25. Chesterfield County Public Schools has enough instructional hours to meet state requirements.
