Rhinelander schools announce make-up day Feb. 25 due to cancellations
RHINELANDER - Students in Rhinelander public schools will need to make up a day due to numerous weather-related cancellations this season.

The School District of Rhinelander announced Monday that students and staff will have a full school day on Monday, Feb. 25.  That day was initially a "professional development/record-keeping" day, meaning students would have been able to stay home.

The SDR has three days built into its calendar for closings and cancellations, but the district has needed to close five times already and more closings are possible throughout the winter and early spring.

The district did not need to add any school days during the 2017-18 year.

"This doesn't happen every year," Community Education Coordinator Mike Cheslock told Newswatch 12. "It's kind of a rarity."

Rhinelander can also add minutes to the beginning or end of school days throughout the year to make up for lost days, but that is an option the district has not used yet this year, according to Cheslock.
