Vero Beach, FL, September 27, 2017– The School Board of Indian River County approved three Hurricane Irma make-up days at the Board meeting on Tuesday night. The following days will be used for make-up: November 22, 2017, December 21, 2017, and April 2, 2018. 

Students missed seven days throughout Hurricane Irma. The extra instructional minutes built in to our District’s regular school day absorbed two of the days, and the Governor waived two of the days, which left us with three remaining days to make-up. A committee of community members and employees were gathered, and came to this conclusion based on what would best benefit our students.
