Snow Make Up Days Scheduled

So far, this winter has surpassed everyone's expectations in regards to unanticipated weather. As of this writing (January 25) there have been eight (8) full days of school missed in Colton due to inclement weather.  

The Colton School Board met on January 23, 2017 and one of their topics of discussion was in regards to possible make-up days for the rest of the year. After hearing feedback from staff and parents over the last few weeks, the board came to a consensus on eight (8) upcoming days that will be used as make-up days. Because of Colton's unique 4-day school week, the Board decided that adding back in some Fridays was preferable than adding up to two additional weeks at the end of the school year. 

Mark your calendars (or download the updated 16/17 Calendar here), the make-up days are:

  • February 3
  • February 17
  • March 17
  • April 14
  • April 21
  • April 28
  • May 12
  • June 9
