BEND, OR -- Bend-La Pine Schools officials are extending the school year because of the five snow days impacting student instruction time. Schools were closed for a sixth and seventh day, Thursday and Friday, after a roof collapse at Kenwood School prompted an emergency closure of all facilities.


The end of the semester will move out one week, and the district has added four days to the end of the school year, in June. Students will now go to a full day of school Friday, June 16th, which was initially scheduled as a short last day. They’ll also have classes Monday, June 19th through Thursday, June 22nd. graduation days will not change.
In Redmond and Sisters, students have lost six days. Redmond Superintendent Mike McIntosh met Wednesday with the Education Association to discuss the calendar. He expects a decision within the next week. Although they've lost roughly 30 hours of instructional time, McIntosh says they are not yet required to add time.
The Sisters School board will take up the issue at their next meeting, February first.
