Snow days have extended the calendar year for two area school districts and will likely extend it for a third district. The weather closures have also pushed back the graduation ceremony for Perquimans high school students by three days.

Teachers now expected to work for free?

Does it make sense to anyone that Elizabeth City is requiring teachers take leave time for the snow days that were forgiven for students? Let me explain, teachers are required in the classroom to work the extra hours of instructional time that was 'banked' which allowed the board of education to forgive two days for students. That means teachers have to take leave for the days forgiven and work the extra hours in each day. It is bad enough that teachers feel mistreated by the legislature but now the school board wants teachers to work for free. That is taking it to a new low.
