Additional Option for Snow Days
Posted on 01/03/2020
This is the image for the news article titled Additional Option for Snow DaysPreviously, when school has been delayed instead of canceled due to severe weather, the Portland Public Schools has been limited to a one-hour delay. Now, as of January 2020, the district now will have the additional option of a two-hour delay.

The one-hour limit was due to the difficulty of meshing bus and ferry schedules for island students. Now, thanks to the creativity, resources and a collective effort on the part of islanders, Casco Bay Lines and the school district, the Portland Public Schools will be able to institute a two-hour delay, when needed. Read Superintendent Xavier Botana’s letter for more details about this additional option.
