REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Schools will add a day and a half to its calendar in June, to make up snow days missed in February. The district notified families Monday evening, saying Friday, June 14 is now the last day of school for grades K-11. June 13 and 14 are now full school days. Originally, the year ended on the 13th, with a half day.
Redmond Proficiency Academy has also extended its year. RPA middle and high school were scheduled to end June 12, but will now also stretch through the 14th.
Last week, Bend-La Pine Schools announced its school year would also extend to June 14, adding one day. Central Oregon school districts lost four days during the last week of February, when several feet of snow piled up across the region.
Graduation ceremonies are not impacted.
