ROANOKE Co., Va. (WDBJ7) -- The Roanoke County School Board has approved the removal of May 23 and 24 as snow makeup days.

According to the Roanoke County Public Schools website, the last day of the 2018-2019 school year will dismiss early on May 22.

“Despite a very wet fall and a cold winter, we determined we had accrued enough banked time that we did not need May 23 or 24 as makeup days,” said Roanoke County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ken Nicely. “We wanted to make sure that we didn’t have any spring snowstorms before making this request of the board,” Nicely said.

Roanoke County students have missed eight days this year due to weather-related closings.
