EDMOND — Parents are heaving a sign of relief while some students aren’t going to be quite as happy.

“All classes and activities will resume Wednesday in Edmond Public Schools,” said Susan Parks-Schlepp, director of public information and community involvement. “Slick spots remain and buses may be running a bit late but secondary roads are in much better shape after significant thawing.”

As reported earlier, students will not be making up the four snow days taken off from school this past week.

The calendar adopted in Edmond two years ago, ratified by the teachers, added 20 minutes to each day. Edmond students still have five snow days left before class time will have to be made up, district officials said.

Deer Creek School District’s students also have been out of school for four days but will not be making up any of the days.

“The district has five snow days built into the school calendar,” said Lenis DeRieux-Winkle, district spokesperson.

“We are tentatively moving forward for school on Wednesday,” DeRieux-Winkle said. “There is still water on the road. If the water refreezes we may have to re-evaluate. Students and parents will be notified by all of the typical means we use to notify them if school is canceled.”
