Richmond County schools to make up missed day on Columbus Day

Latest from The Augusta Chronicle - Tue, 09/13/2016 - 6:46pm

Richmond County public schools will be open Columbus Day to make up for closing Sept. 2 because of Tropical Storm Hermine.
Students originally had Oct. 10 off, but the Richmond County School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to make up the day.

“We need every minute we can get for instruction,” Richmond County Superintendent Angela Pringle said. “And this was our only possible makeup day without cutting into Thanksgiving break.”
