As districts across the state grapple with how to deal with the excessive number of snow days this year, Ovid-Elsie has announced one action it will take: canceling mid-winter break.
Students and parents were planning to have a long weekend, with Friday and Monday off. Unless Monday is a snow day, that's not going to happen.

Dr. Cunningham, O-E Superintendent, released a statement on Monday evening, saying "A survey of our staff showed that over 70% of our staff preferred to make up some of these days this Friday and Monday (originally scheduled as days off for “mid-winter” break) and 90% also chose to have half of a day of school on Good Friday."

He noted that the district has applied for three waiver days that the state already allows, and State Representative Ben Frederick announced on Monday that he is working on legislation to forgive snow days that occurred during the State of Emergency declared by Governor Whitmer.

Reactions on Facebook to the announcement were mixed.

Classes at Ovid-Elsie were cancelled two days last week alone.  A third day was shortened by a morning delay.
